About Us

Charles Kuralt has been called "the poet laureate of the common man." For almost 30 years he wandered the back roads of America, finding inspiring stories in the lives of ordinary people in out of the way places. Throughout the 1960s and '70s, while the lead stories on the CBS Evening News were often about war, assassinations, pollution, poverty, and civil unrest, Charles Kuralt's "On the Road" segments showed America another side of itself. His stories were full of the splendors of nature and the simple decency of people going about their business in America's forgotten places. Cowboys, farmers, pilots, fishermen, poets, inventors, Kuralt found his heroes in all 50 states and in all walks of life. He began his career when television news was just beginning and, while still in his 20s, traveled the world covering the wars, riots and revolutions that make the headlines, but he will be remembered for the stories of people "doing wonderful things, quietly" that he brought into our living rooms, week after week. Charles Kuralt participated in the 1993 Achievement Summit in Glacier National Park and addressed the student delegates.

The American literary world offers no greater award than the Pulitzer Prize. In 1969 the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction went to House Made of Dawn, a first novel from an unknown author. This was unusual enough; even more surprisingly, to some observers, the winner was a Kiowa Indian who had grown up largely in the reservations and pueblos of the Southwest, far from supposed centers of learning and letters. As a whole world of readers and critics were soon to learn, there are no limits to N. Scott Momaday's talents or his vision. As novelist, scholar, painter, printmaker and -- above all -- poet, Momaday's work has encompassed a panorama as wide as the western landscapes he celebrates. In Momaday's work and career, we see an extraordinary fusion of modern Anglo-American literary methods and classical prosody, with Native American traditions of poetry and story-telling. Through his novels, poems, plays, books of folk tales and memoirs, essays and speeches, he has won international respect...
