She has received the Nevada Writers Hall of Fame Silver Pen Award and the Donald Kerr Award for her works.Linda Dufurrena is a widely exhibited and published Nevada photographer who specializes in depictions of rural Nevada scenery and of traditional ranch life. Her book, Fifty Miles from Home, won the Donald Kerr Award from the High Desert Museum in 2005.


"Dufurrena's photography has always reflected her life-the geography of where she lives and the people around her. She shows the endless skies and vistas, the stories that live in Nevada's rocks, the two-track roads that seem to lead to nowhere, the wildlife and flora of the desert, the people at work, at rest and at ease." -Reno Gazette-Journal "... Expect great photography, particularly landscape and nature shots, and fine commentary that will take you right into the heart of Nevada ranching country." -Western Horseman "Linda's photos are always competent; the landscapes are often better than that. They portray a moody, weathered land, downy with snow on one page, gasping for water on another. And always there is the potential for soaring beauty, most particularly in the form of dramatic skyscapes." --Las Vegas Life "This well-made and heartfelt book is at once a primer in high desert ranching, a salute to the stark beauty of this empty country and the people who work it, and-alas-an elegy to a culture that is disappearing." -Journal of the West "Duferrena's photographs-while beautifully rendered and composed-resist sentimentality and romantic notions of ranch labor." -Western American Literature "Readers of Fifty Miles will likely be seduced by Carolyn's writings and equally, or even more, by Linda's exquisite and creative photography." - Klamath Falls Herald and News
