Touring the West with Zane Grey

As a young boy, Lawrence Clark Powell was enthralled by Grey’s stories. Powell channeled this love as a librarian at the University of California Los Angeles and the University of Arizona, and throughout his career published over 100 books, many concerning Arizoniana and Western lore.
