“On December 3, at 8:03 a.m., I put my identification cards on the Formica-topped table in the plant cafeteria [at the Tucson Citizen] and quit my job. My boss hears me out, sipping his coffee patiently and taking deep drags on his cigarette. He is perplexed when I tell him of walks that must be done. There is this man, Lumholtz, I offer, and his eyes glaze over. We agree to chalk it up to burnout, to personal problems that require time. We both recognize it is pointless to talk of the need to see a desert or eat bad food in a Mexican village. He puts a note on the office board explaining I have left to pursue certain projects.”
