"In July of 1928, two writers, Louis Adamic and Carey McWilliams, drove north from Los Angeles to meet Robinson Jeffers. The poet's remarkable verse was already making a national stir along with tales of his solitary and reclusive personality." The strong impressions of the meeting at Tor House were later recorded by Adamic in what is one of the most vivid and detailed description of the poet ever written. The essay was first published in 1929 by the University of Washington Bookstore in a chapbook series.
