Environmental historian James Aton believes Trimble’s “books comprise one of the most wellrounded,sustained, and profound visions of people and landscape that we have ever seen in the American West.” Bloggers at The Gulch judge Trimble to be “one of America's best naturalist writers; nobody else produces prose that is quite so pure, spare, beautiful and clean.”
With his family, Trimble makes his home in Salt Lake City and in the redrock country of Torrey,Utah. From his attic studio in the city, he looks out on the Wasatch Mountains and Great Basin Desert.He is currently presenting readings from Bargaining for Eden, his book about the tension between community and development at the beginning of the 21st Century (which won support from the Utah Humanities Council and Utah Arts Council and the 2008 Utah Book Award in Nonfiction), consulting with The Nature Conservancy’s Colorado Plateau Conservation Initiative, and teaching writing in the University of Utah Honors College. Trimble’s website is www.stephentrimble.net.
