About the event

Join Garcia Street Books for a reading and conversation on First & Wildest: The Gila Wilderness at 100. Editor Elizabeth Hightower Allen will be joined by Torrey House Publisher Kirsten Johanna Allen; contributors Eve West Bessier, Priyanka Kumar, Pam Houston, Renata Golden; and the WildEarth Guardians who are working to protect the Gila Wilderness.

About the Book: In the summer of 1922, Aldo Leopold traveled on horseback up into the headwaters of New Mexico's Gila River and proposed to his bosses at the Forest Service that 500,000 acres of that rough country be set aside as roadless wilderness. Thus was born America's first—the world's first—designated wilderness. A century later, writer-activists come together to celebrate this vast, rugged landscape, the Yellowstone of the Southwest.
