Synopsis: Best known for his 1949 post-apocalyptic thriller Earth Abides, George R. Stewart (1895-1980) spent a lifetime wandering the American landscape and writing books about its geography and history. An English professor at the University of California at Berkeley, the exceptional scholar-author penned some of the most remarkable literary works of the 20th century, inventing several types of books along the way--including the road-geography book, micro-history, place-name history, ecological history, and the ecological novel. By weaving human and natural sciences and history into his books Stewart created works with a multi-disciplinary perspective on events and places that influenced numerous other writers, artists, and scientists, including Stephen King, Greg Bear, and Page Stegner. This volume considers George R. Stewart's rich oeuvre while chronicling a life-long quest to uncover the deepest truths about the man and his work.

About the Author: Donald M. Scott has taught in high schools, adult schools, community college, as a National Park Ranger-Naturalist in national parks and served as a NASA aerospace educational representative, helping NASA astronauts develop and deliver educational programs for students and teachers. His home base is in Arroyo Grande, California, but he travels extensively as a volunteer in parks.
