Abstract

In her introduction, translator remarks that the Chinese western resembles the American western in significant respects and that, indeed, Chinese western writers have sought inspiration from American writers like James Fenimore Cooper, Willa Cather and Owen Wister. One obvious source of inspiration is the idea that the vast frontier offers freedom from official restrictions and the chance to flout authority.
