The Ox-Bow incident by Walter Van Tilburg Clark( Book )

185 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 6,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in 1885, The Ox-Bow Incident is a searing and realistic portrait of frontier life and mob violence in the American West. First published in 1940, it focuses on the lynching of three innocent men and the tragedy that ensues when law and order are abandoned. The result is an emotionally powerful, vivid, and unforgettable re-creation of the Western novel, which Clark transmuted into a universal story about good and evil, individual and community, justice and human nature. As Wallace Stegner writes, [Clark's] theme was civilization, and he recorded, indelibly, its first steps in a new country

"These classic stories by the author of The Ox-Bow Incident reflect Clark's literary power and the major themes of his writing career. Clark was one of the modern West's most significant writers, among the first to explore the fragile, intricate interactions between humankind and the West's vast and often haunted landscape, as well as the interior and intuitive complexities of good and evil. This edition includes "Hook," Clark's most renowned story, and a foreword by literary critic Ann Ronald that sets the stories into the context of Clark's oeuvre and career."--Jacket
