Sažetak
Dime-novel Westerns are a literary form that originated in the United States of America and became very popular since their inception in 1860 onwards. As the term itself implies, they were inexpensive pastimes for people all around America. The main characters of dime novels are people who perform daring feats no matter the danger or the consequences. Two such characters are the notorious outlaw Jesse James and the famous hunter and adventurer Buffalo Bill. The dime novel takes those real-life characters and builds upon them, taking away their character flaws and giving them romantic virtues such as the thirst for adventure or vengeance. It follows a certain number of events in their lives that are deemed interesting or inspirational. The dime novel does not intend to rewrite history by presenting the characters as flawless but merely puts emphasis on their deeds of valor and courage to influence and inspire future generations.
