Marking The Sparrow's Fall: Wallace Stegner's American West. Essays.
by Stegner, Wallace.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. This posthumous collection features fifteen of Stegner's essays on the West that have never before been published in book form, along with several pieces that have been published in somewhat different form. Most of these pieces were written with an eye toward educating the reader in the historical and ecological value of the western landscape. Stegner visits Lake Powell, the 200-mile-long result of damming Glen Canyon on the Colorado River; travels down the backwoods of Utah and Saskatchewan; and wanders through western ghost towns. Regardless the topic, each magical piece of writing collected here reveals the stylistic grace, humorous outlook, and intellectual rigor that earned Stegner his enormous readership and fame. Also included is Stegner's little known novella "Genesis."
