Book Mole: the later work of Wallace Stegner

Larry Bowlden reviews the signifance of Wallace Stegner's wide-ranging vocation as a writer and teacher. Stegner wrote short-stories, biographies, novels, literary and environmental criticism. Stegner was a creative writing teacher to many powerful writers, such as Ken Kesey and Edward Abbey. Stegner went further than most in his condemnation of the American Dream as such, locating in it a tragic illusion about the potential of America's selfless bounty and the lack constraints on American's selfish exploitation of it all.
