ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Wallace Earle Stegner (February 18, 1909 - April 13, 1993) was an American historian, novelist, short story writer, and environmentalist. Some call him The Dean of Western Writers. He was born in Lake Mills, Iowa and grew up in Great Falls, Montana, Salt Lake City, Utah and southern Saskatchewan, which he wrote about in his autobiography Wolf Willow. Stegner says he lived in twenty places in eight states and Canada.[1] While living in Utah, he joined a Boy Scout troop at a Mormon church (though he was not Mormon but Presbyterian himself) and earned the Eagle Scout award. He received his B.A. at the University of Utah in 1930.
