T. H. Watkins

One of the foremost chroniclers of the American West, T. H. Watkins was an editor of Wilderness magazine and Wallace Stegner Distinguished Professor of Western American Studies at Montana State University. He is perhaps best known for Righteous Pilgrim, a 1990 biography of Harold L. Ickes, the crusading secretary of the interior for Franklin Delano Roosevelt, which was a National Book Award finalist. He also wrote The Hungry Years and The Great Depression: America in the 1930s.
