From the Back Cover:

Marking the Sparrow's Fall is Wallace Stegner's biggest collection and the first since his death. His son, Page, has selected fifteen essays that have never before been published in any book and placed them alongside Wallace Stegner's most powerful pieces in the book's three nonfiction parts: Home Ground (memory), Testimony (defense of the earth), and Inheritance (history). The fourth section of the book is devoted to a magnificent little-known novella, "Genesis". As Page Stegner writes of the collection, "It is as complete and comprehensive a statement as we are ever likely to have about what it means to be a westerner, about what it means to know ourselves as 'a part of the natural world and competent to belong in it.'"

About the Author:

The winner of a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award, Wallace Stegner is the author of a dozen novels and as many works of nonfiction, including Angle of Repose, The Spectator Bird, and Crossing to Safety. The founder and director of the graduate writing program at Stanford University, he spent much of his life in northern California and Vermont. He died in 1993.

Page Stegner is the author of many books. For twenty-eight years he served as Professor of American Literature and Director of the Creative Writing Program at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He now divides his time between northeastern Vermont and northern California.
