Wallace Stegner

cover
"The homesickness was not merely for Salt Lake, a city in a valley under the lee of mountains, with the glint of the lake off westward, but for a whole region, a whole lifetime of acclimatization and expectation."
-- Where the Bluebird Sings to the Lemonade Springs

cover
"'I don't know about you, but Sid and I think a little city like this, with a good university in it, is the real flowering of the American dream.'"
-- Crossing to Safety
(On Madison, WI)

cover
"If you start at the northern tip of the Mormon Country and come down the Snake, you come through a string of Mormon towns - St. Anthony, Sugar City, Rexburg, Rigby, Idaho Falls, Blackfoot - all of them green and lush, grown prosperous on potatoes and sugar beets and garden truck."
-- Mormon Country

"This was the country the Mormons settled, the country which, as Brigham Young with some reason hoped, no one else wanted. Its destiny was plain on its face, its contempt of man and his history and his theological immortality, his Millennium, his Heaven on Earth, was monumentally obvious. Its distances were terrifying, its cloudbursts catastrophic, its beauty flamboyant and bizarre and allied with death."
-- Mormon Country
