Other contributions include "The Outook for Western Publishing" by Oscar Lewis; "Queen City of the Plains and Peaks" - Bernard De Voto; "The West as Seen From the East" - George R. Stewart. Stegner discusses the scant evidence behind the Joe Hill myth and tentatively concludes "The Joe Hill who may never have walked a picket line in his life has been on hundreds since his death. He has been improved and purified and remade in the image of his makers. As legend, he is whole and unambiguous." Stegner and Houghton, Mifflin would publish a slow-selling fictionalized biography of Joe Hill, "The Preacher and the Slave", in 1950. It was reprinted as "Joe Hill. A Biographical Novel" in 1969, and again by the University of Nebraska Press in 1980. A Fine copy.
