    Ways to the West

    Tim Sullivan is a city planner, urban designer, and writer whose professional focus is the reshaping of cities and com-munities through alternative transpor-tation planning. He is the author of No Communication with the Sea: Searching for an Urban Future in the Great Basin. He lives in Salt Lake City with his wife and two children.

    In Ways to the West, Tim Sullivan embarks on a car-less road trip through the Intermountain West, exploring how the region is taking on what may be its greatest challenge: sustainable transporta-tion. Combining personal travel narrative, histori-cal research, and his professional expertise in urban planning, Sullivan takes a critical yet optimistic and often humorous look at how contemporary Western cities are making themselves more hospitable to a life less centered on the personal vehicle.

    The modern West was built by the automobile, but so much driving has jeopardized the Wests mystic hold on the American future. At first, auto-mobility heightened the things that made the West great, but love became dependence, and depen-dence became addiction. Via his travels by bicycle, bus, and train through Las Vegas, Phoenix, Denver, Boise, Salt Lake City, and Portland, Sullivan cap-tures the modern transportation evolution tak-ing place across the region and the resulting ways in which contemporary Western communities are reinterpreting classic American values like mobility, opportunity, adventure, and freedom.

    Finding a West created, lost, and reclaimed, Ways to the West will be of great interest to anyone curious about sustainable transportation and the history, geography, and culture of the American West.

    How Getting Out of Our Cars Is Reclaiming Americas Frontier

    Tim Sullivan

    This book should be read by every planner, transportation engineer, city commissioner, councilman, mayor, economic development director, and developer.

    John inglish, former CEO, Utah Transit Authority

    A fascinating read that gives new insight into the transportation evolution that is now taking place across this region.

    In 1928, the newly organized Denver Artists Guild held its inaugural exhibition in downtown Denver. Little did the participants realize that their initial effort would survive the Great Depression and World War IIand then outlive all of the groups fifty-two charter members.

    The guilds founders worked in many media and pursued a variety of styles. In addition to the oils and watercolors one would expect were master-ful pastels by Elsie Haddon Haynes, photographs by Laura Gilpin, sculpture by Gladys Caldwell Fisher and Arnold Rnnebeck, ceramics by Anne Van Briggle Ritter and Paul St. Gaudens, and col-lages by Pansy Stockton. Styles included real-ism, impressionism, regionalism, surrealism, and abstraction. Murals by Allen True, Vance Kirkland, John E. Thompson, Louise Ronnebeck, and others graced public and private buildingssecular and religiousin Colorado and throughout the United States. The guilds artists didnt just contribute to the fine and decorative arts of Colorado; they enhanced the national reputation of the state.

    Then, in 1948, the Denver Artists Guild became the stage for a great public debate pitting tradi-tional against modern. The twenty-year-old guild split apart as modernists bolted to form their own group, the Fifteen Colorado Artists. It was a semi-nal moment: some of the guilds artists became great modernists, while others remained great traditionalists.

    Enhanced by period photographs and repro-ductions of the founding members works, The Denver Artists Guild chronicles a vibrant yet over-looked chapter of Colorados cultural history. The book includes a walking tour of guild members paintings and sculptures viewable in Denver and elsewhere in Colorado, by Leah Ness and author Stan Cuba.

    Po e t ry

    In T. Zachary Cotlers Supplice, humanisms dialectic is itself a primary form of torture. Working inside the circuitry of thesis-antithesis, self-other, the poems collected here answer no to Keatss questions in Ode on a Grecian Urn, confessing that truth / is beauty isnt true. In a world become word, the eternal present eternally fails / to be trapped, and our poet-pilgrim is bound by dueling via negativa that chart the passage of dailleurs or elsewhere, where he finds history has located meanings trajectory. A not-ready-for-remnant-sonnet sequence as chilling as it is tutelary.

    Natalie Scenters-Zapico is from the sister cities of El Paso, Texas, United States, and Cd. Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. Her poems have appeared in journals including The Believer, American Poets, Prairie Schooner, West Branch, and Palabra.
