Overview

Wallace Stegner is one of the finest American writers, teachers, and environmentalists of the twentieth century. While his writing, both fiction and nonfiction, was recognized by a Pulitzer Prize, a National Book Award, and many other distinctions major and minor, his legacy is much larger than any of these would suggest. His Stegner Fellows from Stanford include some of the best writers and scholars of this generation. His thoughtful environmental activism has ever more relevance for the world of today. His riveting nonfiction is taught in colleges and universities worldwide, and his subtle, many-layered fiction has brought joy, sometimes irritation, and inspiration to thousands of hopeful writers as well as readers.

What People Are Saying

Richard Etulain
Quite simply, Jackson Benson is the best-versed specialist we have on Stegner, whom I consider the best of our recent Western writers. The collection links a superb critic/biographer with a premier western writer. These essays reveal the strengths of Benson's approach to Stegner. Not only does he provide revealing commentaries on the best-known of Stenger's novels, nonfiction, and short stories, he also furnishes new material on Stegner's role in conservation and environmental efforts, his less recognized writings, and his friendship with Robert Frost.
