Beyond bounds : cross-cultural essays on Anglo, American Indian, and Chicano literature by Robert Gish( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A healthy disrespect for cultural exclusiveness marks the essays collected here, a series of appreciations and explications of writers not ordinarily considered together. As the author notes in his introduction, his own biography and career are reflected in this assemblage. An Anglo of mixed Irish, German, and American Indian heritage who grew up in a Hispanic neighborhood in Albuquerque, Gish has always known that "one's place on the academic, social, or cultural 'bus' (back, front, passenger, or driver) changes with the times, as does the bus itself." Here he shares with us not only his recent enthusiasmshe was among the first critics to consider such minority writers as Rudolfo Anaya, James Welch, Ray Young Bear, and Jimmy Santiago Baca, and his essays on them serve as excellent introductions to their work - but also his continuing appreciation for the Anglo writers he read as a young man

First horses : stories of the new West by Robert Gish( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stories about "the West" are often associated with cattle drives, cowboy and Indian stand-offs, badmen in black hats, and rugged pioneers. First Horses: Stories of the New West is an original collection of fourteen short stories in which Robert F. Gish describes a multiethnic, contemporary West that encourages the reader to see beyond the stereotypes of the Old West. All of the stories depict the emotional and psychological costs of the prejudices and injustices of the Old West that have carried over into the twentieth-century New West. Gish's vivid storytelling technique utilizes compelling voices and gritty characters: the regulars at a small-town cafe; the local rodeo with its manly contests; the staged fiesta with its attempt to recreate traditions; a young stripper at a honky-tonk tavern; the classrooms and playgrounds of public schools with their mix of Anglo, Mexican American, and American Indian youths; and the fields where taboos of interracial romance evaporate into the cloudless blue sky and the churning, muddy irrigation waters of the Rio Grande. The unifying theme of these short stories is a subtle plea for harmony and mutual respect among the inhabitants and the landscapes. Violence, racism, sexism, and environmental pollution prove to be the remnants of earlier insensibilities, residues in need of recognition and disavowal. Many of these stories, told in varying voices of male and female, Anglo and Hispanic, young and old, trace this "recognition" along the turbulent paths of initiation as one generation learns about its own special concerns in the shared heritage of others. All fourteen stories in First Horses are set in the sometimes magical, sometimes brutal Southwest. Cutting through class and ethnicity, each story illustrates how a land and its history determine a people and are determined by them. Persons interested in the literature and history of the American West or in the New Ethnicity will enjoy the stories in First Horses
Nueva Granada : Paul Horgan and the southwest by Robert Gish( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nueva Granada presents a long personal interview that has never before been published to complement a fresh, updated selection of Robert Franklin Gish's many essays and articles about Paul Horgan and his Southwestern writings. Horgan provides readers with a classic image of the West, but Gish shows us that Horgan transcends regions and touches on universal qualities. In fact, Gish stresses Horgan's recognition of a new West, a place that is dense with not only geographic diversity, but ethnic and cultural diversity as well. Both Horgan's work and Gish's critical essays and his interview with the author reveal the "heroic triad" of cultures. Nueva Granada explicitly explores Horgan's reactions to and portrayals of American Indian, Spanish/Mexican, and Anglo interrelationships in the old West that has now become new
