"We need wilderness preserved - as much of it as is still left, and as many kinds - because it was the challenge against which our character as a people was formed," said Wallace Stegner in a famous 1960 letter. He was a fervent admirer and advocate of nature, often writing about the West. He also started the creative writing department at Stanford. Join us to learn about a legend from those who knew him.
