Visions of a Basque American Westerner: International Perspectives on the Writings of Frank Bergon gathers the essays of nine scholars and writers from the United States and Europe, who presented papers on the novels, essays, and critical works of Frank Bergon at a two-day conference, sponsored by the Center for Basque Studies and the Jon Bilbao Basque Library at the University of Nevada, Reno, in March 2019

Topics range from Basque aspects of Bergon's fiction to his investigation of inauthenticity in a post-truth world, from discussions of Shoshone Mike as a "perfect novel" to work on The Journals of Lewis and Clark as a "dazzling and foundational account" in literary ecocriticism.

A focus on Bergon's fiction reveals his uniqueness as the only novelist to present Basque American experience linearly across four generations and the first to render fully the voices of Okie California since The Grapes of Wrath.
