Readers seeking a deeper understanding of midwestern literature can then move on to other essays that explore it in depth through a variety of critical approaches. Works that may be discussed include Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, Jane Smiley's A Thousand Acres, Ernest Hemingway's Nick Adams Stories, Toni Morrison's Beloved, F. Scott Fitzgerald's Winter Dreams, Garrison Keillor's Home, and Saul Bellow's Looking for Mr. Green. Rounding out the volume are a list of literary works that are not discussed in the book that concern the theme as well as a bibliography of critical sources for readers seeking to study this theme in greater depth.
