Here’s a bonus from Dr. Starrs – a downloadable pdf file of his fine essay about flight and Geography:
Dr. Paul F. Starrs is a distinguished professor of geography at the University of Nevada, Reno. He’s received many accolades for his teaching and research, including four awards for excellence in teaching and a Fulbright Scholarship. He has also written or co-written several books – most recently, the wonderful UC Field Guide to California Agriculture. (Every road traveler to this agricultural state should carry a copy of that book.) He and his colleague Peter Goin also did a fine little book about a Nevada place, Black Rock, immortalized by George R. Stewart in one of his ecological novels.
Dr. Starrs’ review of The Life and Truth of George R. Stewart has now been published in the Association of American Geographers (AAG) Review of Books. More an essay than a simple review, his work discusses the life, ideas, and books of George R. Stewart in the context of the biography. You need to be registered to read the full article – an expensive registry, I’m sure – but you can see the preview here: http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/2325548X.2015.985537#abstract.
It’s an honor to have the George R. Stewart biography, The Life and Truth of George R. Stewart, reviewed by Dr. Starrs.
Word has come from Distinguished Geographer Paul F. Starrs that the Life and Truth of George R. Stewart will be published and in the hands of those who’ve pre-ordered by August 1, 2012.
