In honor of Wallace Stegner’s birth, on February 18, 2009, the University of Utah’s public television station KUED TV released a new documentary on Wallace Stegner. Wallace Stegner was many things: Teacher. Historian. Environmentalist. But, above all, Stegner was a writer. Considered by many to be the “Dean” of western writers, he was a Pulitzer Prize- winning novelist and non-fiction author, with more than thirty full-length works and countless essays addressing the landscape, humankind’s footprint, and the evolution of a region and nation. A renowned mentor, he shaped the outlook and careers of an extraordinary range of young writers. Featured guests interviewed for this new documentary include Sandra Day O’Connor, Bruce Babbitt, and Stuart Udall.
