Wallace Stegner, born in Lake Mills, Iowa, spent time as a child and young man moving frequently. He described his early nomadic life as having “lived in twenty places in eight states and Canada.” Place and home would later be key themes in many of his writings. Named “The Dean of Western Writers” his remarkable career as an American historian, author, and environmentalist will continue to leave an indelible mark on the past, present, and future of the West.
