Fragment:

"In the fall of 1884, journalist Charles Lummis set out on foot from Ohio to California on assignment for the Los Angeles Times. The reports he mailed ahead to that newspaper were later refashioned for the book A Tramp Across the Continent, a work that helped to establish Lummis as the most active promoter of the Southwestern culture who ever lived. Lummis later wrote another set of letters during his journey, however, which he sent back to Ohio for publication by the Chillicothe Leader. Although these letters contain basically the same narrative as those sent to Los Angeles and later found in a A Tramp, the Ohio letters more closely reflect the author's thoughts and observations on the journey. In fact, a comparison of the two drafts indicates that Lummis spent considerable effort removing spontaneous details from the Ohio letters in favor of a more commercial self-promoting, and politic reporting for the California paper. The twenty-four Ohio letters, assembled here by James W. Byrkit, offer a far more candid look at the Southwest than Lummis was later to bring to print, as well as greater insight to the author's own personality. Byrkit's introductory essay provides background for Lummis's career, compares the three bodies of work relating to the trek, and offers an account of Lummis's transformation from chronicler to promoter" --Book jacket.
