Idah Meacham Strobridge

  • The Desert proclaiming itself, speaks gently. ... if you and the Desert have found each other, surely you will feel the drawing of your soul toward the eternal calm — the brooding peace that is there in the gray country.

  • When your eye is so trained that it may discover the beauty that dwells in that vast, still corner of the world, and your ear is attuned to catch the music of the plains or the anthems sung in deep cañons by the winds; when your heart finds comradeship in the mountains and the great sand-seas, the sun and the stars, and the huge cloud-drifts that the Desert winds set a-rolling round the world — when all these reach your heart by way of your eye and your ear, then you shall find one of the alluring ways that belongs to the Desert.

Idah Meacham Strobridge, U.S. writer

(1855 - 1932)
