Boise State Library Western Writers Series

Editors' Picks

You never know what you are going to find in the stacks at Albertsons Library. And we're not just talking books here. But from the comfort of your laptop, you can peruse an amazing collection of writings by Western American scribes. They've got original criticisms and biographies on Gary Snyder, Jack Kerouac, Ken Kesey, Richard Brautigan and some two dozen more Western writers. Here's a quiz: Which Western writer worked at the Seattle Times while taking part in the Sandoz LSD experiments at the University of Washington and then called in "well" to work and started his first book. Need a hint? Think cowgirls and talking spoons.

The correct name of the series is the "Western Writers Series Digital Editions."
