• Humor of the old Southwest : an annotated bibliography of primary and secondary sources Griffith, Nancy S. 1989 Bibliographies and indexes in American literature ( Serie ) New York : Greenwood Pr. Englisch 0313260060 Abstract

    Between the years of 1835 and 1861, humorists in the Southwest helped to ease the harshness of pioneer life by writing tall tales and humorous stories. This writing, which was often in dialect and emphasized violence, cruelty, and depravity, strikes a sharp contrast to the sentimental morality that characterized the conventional literature of the time. Humor of the Old Southwest is the first book-length bibliography to organize works about Southwest humor in general and capture specific information by and about nine major humorists, including Davey Crockett.
