Quote: The new West called me but my old world heredity, the flavour of my upbringing pulled me back.
A foreboding dread, a fear almost of Nature and its power comes out in many of her brooding compositions.
More than ever it I was convinced that the old way of seeing was inadequate to express this big country of ours, her depth, her height, her unbounded wideness.
