Guest: Professor David Gessner of the University of North Carolina Wilmington The Wild West is Top of Mind. Not cowboys and Indians, or Great Train Robberies, but the wild landscape of the West. Its immensity attracted outlaws, gold diggers, and dreamers of every variety. But nature writer David Gessner argues in his latest book that the grand valleys and majestic peaks of the West are deceptively fragile. He examines that dichotomy through the works of two iconic writers, and his book is called All the Wild that Remains: Edward Abbey, Wallace Stegner, and the American West.
