9780803279087: A Tramp across the Continent

When young Charles Lummis heard about a job in the small town of Los Angeles more than a century ago, he walked all the way to it—across the plains, up Pike's Peak, down Devil's Gorge, through the Grand Canyon, over the desert. It was, by conservative estimate, one of the grandest hikes in American history. With no reason to be modest, Lummis called his "unpretentious" account of it "the wayside notes of a happy vagabonding."

About the Author:

Charles F. Lummis, an editor and ethnologist who wrote successfully for a broad audience, is best remembered for his books about the early legendary history of New Mexico and about the southwestern Indians, including The Land of Poco Tiempo (1893) and Mesa, Cañon and Pueblo (1925). His 1891 collection of Pueblo folklore, Pueblo Indian Folk-Stories, is also a Bison Book.

Review:

"Lummis walked from Ohio to California in 1884, and in the journal he published in 1892 he calls his saga 'the simple story of joy on legs.' In a vivid style he tells of losing his way in a blizzard, setting his own broken arm in the wilderness, and other rugged adven-tures."—American West (American West)

"The true value of the book is in the glimpse of what it was like to come upon, talk and travel with a wide range of Westerners, for Lummis was a born reporter who, indeed, ended his three-thousand-mile tramp by walking into the Los Angeles Daily News and starting work as city editor."—English Westerners' Tally Sheet (English Westerners' Tally Sheet)

"[A] time-honored classic."—New Mexico Magazine (New Mexico Magazine)
