About

 

photo of Larry HogueHello and welcome to my website! A little about me: I began as a writer of nonfiction with travel and environmental articles in various magazines and weekly newspapers. My book about the Anza-Borrego Desert, All the Wild and Lonely Places: Journeys in a Desert Landscape was published by Island Press in 2000. I also taught creative writing and composition at the University of San Diego and National University. Then I worked for several years with the Desert Protective Council.

Since moving to Michigan, I’ve turned my attention to fiction, and I’m glad to say that my first novel, Daring and Decorum, will be published by Supposed Crimes on August 1. Details here.

I’ve also been working on a biking guidebook, Mid-Mitten Cyclingbut that’s fallen a bit by the wayside as I’ve focused on writing fiction.

Of course, the best way to keep up-to-date with all of this is to receive alerts through email, so please fill out the form in the top left column. You can contact me by leaving a comment below, or you can email me at: Lahogue at gmail dot com.

    Mr. Hogue, I recently read an ariticle you wrote concerning the Indians of Central California and their sophisitcation in managing the environment. I fully concur with your conclusions but was wondering if you had a bibliography or list of sources for your information. The failure to understand the centuries of land management practiced by the native Americans has reulted in a false picture that the beauty and vitality of the our “natural” landscape as witness by John Muir and others simply occurred without human intervention. The resulting passive approach of letting nature take it’s course, has resulted in the catastrophe which is ccurrently unfolding on our public lands. 66 million trees, at last count, are now dead primarily in the pine forests of the southern Sierra Nevada Mountains because of our failure to understand that active management is needed if we are to sustain healthy forests into the future. Would appreciate hearing from you if you have time. Steve Worthley, 5th generation Tulare County resident and member of Tulare County Board of Supervisors.
