The Virginian -  cover

The Virginian 

Its narrator, fresh from the East, encounters in Wyoming cattle country a beautiful, baffling, and sometimes violent land where the handsome figure of the Virginian battles Trampas for supremacy and demonstrates that the customs of the country must eventually prevail. In his courtship of the Vermont school teacher, Molly Wood, the Virginian encounters a battle of a different kind. Rich in vernacular wit and portraying a romanticized escape from the decorum of the patrician East, The Virginian conveys a sense of redemptive possibility drawing on Wisters ranching, hunting, and fishing trips in Wyoming and Montana between 1885 and 1900.
