Hell of a Vision: Regionalism and the Modern American West
By Robert L. Dorman. University of Arizona Press. 272 pp. Index. $50.00.

Our Southwest gets its share of attention, but Dorman’s scope is the entire region west of the Rockies and his aim is to understand and illuminate the rise of regionalism during the 20th century, especially as represented in literature.
Hidden America:From Coal Miners to Cowboys, An Extraordinary Exploration of the Unseen People Who Make This Country Work
By Jeanne Marie Laskas. G.P. Putnam's Sons. 318 pp. $26.95.

In this Terkel-like glimpse into working America the Southwest rates two chapters, one on a “Guns ‘R’ Us” store in Arizona and another about a ranch in Texas. Neither are places you’ll probably visit on your own, but both reveal something of modern America.
