The geography of hope : a tribute to Wallace Stegner( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Legacy of Wallace Stegner (1909-1993) - as writer, teacher and conservationist - once moved Edward Abbey to declare him "the only living American worthy of the Nobel." Unequaled in the American literature of place, his Pulitzer Prize-winning fiction created an entirely new consciousness of the American West. As director of the Creative Writing Program at Stanford University, Stegner wielded a powerful influence on many of the most important writers of two generations. Through his work for the Sierra Club and the Wilderness Society and his service as special assistant to the Secretary of the interior, Stegner contributed substantially to the emergence and development of the environmental movement. This remarkable tribute volume brings together eloquent testimonies from colleagues, friends, and family whose lives Wallace Stegner profoundly graced. Edited by Stegner's wife and son, and illustrated by a gallery of candid photographs, The Geography of Hope is a stirring memorial to a truly great man, whose incandescent spirit will remain an inspiration for generations to come
The selected letters of Wallace Stegner by Wallace Earle Stegner( Book )

9 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wallace Stegner, recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in 1972, was a great writer. As an author, historian, teacher, and environmentalist, he influenced countless prominent individuals during his long life. Showcasing some of those relationships, these letters (written between 1933 and 1993) cover a broad range of topics, including literature, history, conservation, and Stanford. Here are letters to colleagues, like Ansel Adams, friends and family, as well as many students who went on to become well-respected authors, among them Wendell Berry, John Daniel, Barry Lopez, William Kittredge, and Robert Stone. In 1946 he founded the prestigious Stegner Fellowship Program. In 1961, his memos to then Secretary of the Interior Steward Udall set the tone and agenda for what would become the modern environmental movement. Here, in their entirety, are the letters that track it all. For a man who had no interest in writing an autobiography, they offer an inside look at his "unedited thoughts and opinions, and to a factual narrative untransformed by the literary imagination, to life lived before being lived," writes his son Page Stegner in his introduction. Here is history as told through correspondence with people who helped sh

These are essays, adventure stories, reflections, even confessions about the power rivers have over us, written by people who for one reason for another were compelled to explore, to

Wallace Stegner's West by Wallace Earle Stegner( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of Wallace Stegner's fiction and essays is as broad as the Great Basin and as dynamic as California's coastline. Considered one of the foremost writers of the West, Stegner ranges with ease from Utah to California, and from epic novels to nonfiction essays, in this first major compendium of his extensive body of work. Included are several previously unpublished essays, and anchoring it all is an instinctive sense of place." "Stegner - winner of a Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award - devoted his career to writing about the West. As the director and founder of Stanford University's creative writing program, he helped influence the likes of Wendell Berry, Edward Abbey, Larry McMurtry, and Barry Lopez. He fought not only for recognition of a Western cultural base but also for the protection of the region's delicate environment. The West was not simply a source of inspiration to Stegner but a state of mind - a revelatory concept to many people at the time." "His writing, however, remains the centerpiece of his legacy, A brilliant observer and a master of language, he captured the essence of Western life."--Jacket
