Hide Profile

Stan Steiner was born on January 1, 1925, son of Bernard and Regina Storch Steiner of Brooklyn. After attending the University of Wisconsin for a year, Steiner hitchhiked West from New York in 1945 and began a forty year love affair with the people and places of the American West. The center of his personal and working life until his death was the reevaluation of the history of the West from a Western perspective. This took the form of his many books, from his earliest The Last Horse (1961) to the posthumous publication, edited by Emily Skretny Drabanski, of The Waning of the West (1989).Along the way, Steiner's wrote several seminal works, among them The New Indians (1968), La Raza : The Mexican Americans (1969), The Tiguas : Lost Tribe of City Indians (1972), The Islands : The World of the Puerto Ricans (1974), The Vanishing White Man (1976), Fusang : The Chinese who Built America (1979), Spirit Woman : The Diaries of Bonita Wa Wa Calachaw Nunez (editor, 1980), The Ranchers (1980, rev. 1985), and Dark and Dashing Horsemen (1981).
