Fall 2018: The West

Haystack, Thomas Hart Benton, 1938, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

Fall 2018’s series explored literature of the West, beginning with a novel about homesteaders in Wyoming in the late nineteenth century and ending with essays published in the late 1960s that incited environmentalists to help save the Southwest from destruction from industrial harm.
