This paper contains an application and analysis of revisionist theory in the book and Egan's perspective of the "New West." Revisionist theory is any theory that relies on alternative information to devise alternative theories to history and historical happenings. The writer looks at how revisionist theory abounds in Egan's book, "Lasso the Wind," as he travels around the West and discovers a lifestyle and outlook far different from the settlers of the Old West, who came to create better lives for themselves in a land rich with minerals, farmland, and resources.
