Southwest Sampler is a regular feature on KSUT, featuring audio commentary by Andrew Gulliford, Ph.D., Professor of History and Environmental Studies at Fort Lewis College in Durango.
Gulliford is widely traveled in the American Southwest, and writes about it. He's the author of Outdoors in the Southwest: An Adventure Anthology, and Sacred Objects and Sacred Places: Preserving Tribal Traditions, among other books. His column Gulliford's Travels appears regularly in the Durango Herald, and some of his essays have been published in High Country News and Mountain Gazette.
Gulliford also leads adventure tours by raft and horseback.
For the ongoing series Southwest Sampler, Andrew Gulliford presents original audio essays about the history, landscape, culture and people of the American Southwest. The feature will air twice monthly during KSUT's Morning Edition, and all essays will be archived here.
