Title

Desert Year

Description

Krutch (1893-1970) was an eastern city dweller all his life until a sabbatical in Arizona overwhelmed him. He spent the remaining eighteen years of his life in Tucson. Krutch, who once claimed (I paraphrase) that there was nothing in nature one couldn’t get from a picture postcard, was stunned by what he found in the Sonoran Desert and turned his writing talents to describing what he saw.
--W. David Laird.
