American West (Adam Matthew Digital)

URL http://www.americanwest.amdigital.co.uk
Description Sources from the Everett D. Graff Collection of Western Americana at the Newberry Library, Chicago.
The story of the American West has exerted a powerful influence over the psyche of the modern world, helping to fashion senses of national identity as well as permeating literary and cinematic culture. Tales of frontier life, of Native Americans and of vigilantes and outlaws are of constant interest, and are matched by more recent interest in the growth of urban centres, the environmental impact of westward expansion and of life in the borderlands. The Graff Collection is a unique resource which will allow scholars to explore all of these areas and more. Through a mixture of original manuscripts, maps, ephemeral material and rare printed sources, this collection will act as a dynamic teaching and research resource.
