High Desert Journal looks to regional writers to chronicle the West
By Sara Beitia
Hold an issue of the slightly outsized High Desert Journal. It has a nice weight and feel. The exterior's appearance is spare, professional and visually analogous to the West that the journal hopes to represent--earth-colored, not overwrought and possessing an almost desolate beauty. The cover invites the reader to come inside.
A robust snowpack in the Boise Mountains; a People's Climate Change rally at the Statehouse; a lawsuit over public defense; a yellow fever warning from the CDC; and Donald Trump won't be at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, but he'll certainly be on the menu.
