For the purposes of this study, I am defining the "Western" or "Western formula" as a mode of romance which is set somewhere along the moving frontier at a time when the values of wilderness and civilization are in tension, and which concerns the involvement of a highly stylized protagonist in some form of pursuit. This definition is meant to exclude stories which deal primarily with the agricultural West, and which might more accurately be termed "regional," "local color," or "realistic."

A thorough history of the beginnings of the dime novel industry appears in Albert Johannsen, The House of Beadle and Adams (Norman: Univ. of Oklahoma Press, 1950), I, 3-6, 15-72. For a discussion of the standard formats and subject matter of the dime novel, see Russel B. Nye, The Unembarrassed Muse: The Popular Arts in America (New York: Dial, 1970), pp. 201-203.
