–          Wallace Stegner (Feb 18, 1909 – Apr 13, 1993)

–          Wallace Stegner’s Where the Bluebird sings to the lemonade springs

Where the Bluebird Sings to the Lemonade Springs gathers together Wallace Stegner’s most important and memorable writings on the American West, its landscapes, diverse history, and shifting identity, its beauty, fragility, and power. With subjects ranging from the writer’s own migrant childhood to the need to protect what remains of the great western wilderness – which Stegner describers as the ‘geography of hope’,  to poignant profiles of western writers such as John Steinbeck and Norman Maclean, this collection is a riveting testament to the power of place. At the same time it communicates vividly the sensibility and range of this most gifted of American writers, historians, and environmentalists.
