Rebroadcast: William Kittredge

Pete Springer/OPB

William Kittredge is something of a western writing icon. He’s written 50 stories, more than 100 essays, two dozen books and has some movie credits as well, including co-authoring the screenplay for “A River Runs Through It.” His 1987 collection of essays has been descibed as having “mapped the emotional terrain of the modern west.” You can read Emily’s original introduction to Kittredge on our blog here.

Have you read any of William Kittridge’s work? What sticks with you? Are you from southeastern Oregon? How did his writing affect you?
