Synopsis

In 1906, Nello Vernon-Wood (1882-1978) reinvented himself as Tex

Wood, Banff hunting guide and writer of "yarns of the wilderness

by a competent outdoorsman." His homespun stories of a vanishing

world, in such periodicals as The Sportsman, Hunting and Fishing, and

the Canadian Alpine Journal, have much to tell us about the west as

envisioned by those who wanted to leave the early 20th century behind

- or at least read about others who had done so. In the writings

of his persona "Tex," Vernon-Wood created an image of the

frontier that blended the West of his guiding experiences with the West

as a literary object. Editors Gow and Rak guide the reader with a

framing introduction to the work, as well as to each article.
