Davidson shows in this groundbreaking study, a number of Canada’s most interesting and experimental Western writers parody, reverse, or otherwise defuse the paraphernalia of the classic U.S. Western.  Lacking both a real and imagined frontier – Canadian settlers rode trains into the new territory, already policed by Mounties – the writers of Canadian Westerns were set a different task from their American counterparts and were subsequently freed to create some of the most complex and engrossing fiction yet produced in Canada.’ (from rear wrap)
