"Angle of Repose is a 1971 novel by Wallace Stegner about a wheelchair-using historian, Lyman Ward, who has lost connection with his son and living family and decides to write about his frontier-era grandparents. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1972. The novel is directly based on the letters of Mary Hallock Foote, later published as A Victorian Gentlewoman in the Far West... In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Angle of Repose #82 on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century." - Wikipedia. A brlliant read !
