Editorial Reviews

A collection of letters from and to the writer whose book, "The Desert", fostered an appreciation of the American Southwest in the early years of the 20th century. Although he wrote that he rode alone on horseback through thousands of miles of the region, his correspondence reveals that he saw most of the desert from plush railroad cars and grand hotel rooms. Includes b&w photos. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
