Searching for yellowstone

Norman K. Denzin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This experimental, layered, mixed-genre narrative folds my biographical experiences into a critical reading of Wallace Stegner's autobiographical account of his childhood. This reading allows me to discuss three versions of the midcentury white male middle-class American dream. I compare Stegner's father to my father and my grandfather, as I discuss a trip I almost made to Yellowstone Park with my grandfather before he died.
