(Poets and Poetry in America)

Walt McDonald’s short stories have appeared widely in literary magazines, anthologies, and in the collection A Band of Brothers: Stories from Vietnam (1989). As a scholar and critic, he has published essays in many journals and reference works, and he coedited A“Catch-22” Casebook (1973) with Frederick Kiley and Texas Stories and Poems (1978) with James P. White.

With archivist Janet M. Neugebauer, McDonald has also published art books, including All That Matters: The Texas Plains in Photographs and Poems (1992) and Whatever the Wind Delivers: Celebrating West Texas and the Near Southwest (1999). These volumes present McDonald’s poetry alongside historic photographs from the Southwest Collection, creating a strong aesthetic effect and an engaging interpretive social history.
