Mormon Country

by Walace Stegner

This was one of the books quoted in Into the Wild so when I found it on my father's shelf I picked it up to read. My father said he's a great writer, Stegner. But I just couldn't get into it. Physical descriptions of the land, and organization of the early Latter-Day Saint settlers who cultivated the desert. I flipped ahead and found much of the same; I think it was the writing style that bored me, for now.

Abandoned ....0/5... 362 pages, 1981
