Oof, I'm just now finding out that large parts of fave novel Angle of Repose were plagiarized from the journals of Mary Hallock Foote. I really liked the authentic-sounding descriptions of life in the old west; apparently, they sounded authentic because "author" Stegner copied from the journal of someone who, y'know, lived in the old west and wrote eloquently about it.
