Surrounded by the Coconino National Forest in Arizona, a mountain of cinders called Sunset Crater rears above the pinon pines much as it must have done after the decades of eruption that started in 1064. The red tint at its summit could almost be the rocks still glowing. On either side of the smooth black road, the scrubland is eerily perfect and unbroken. The earth, the rocks, the plant life are beautifully themselves: "Unspoiled" is the word we use for these shrinking zones of the Earth.

John Elders had that queasy feeling as he walked into the office of Ed Carroll, Cal State Fullerton athletic director, last July. Elders, the Titans' cross-country coach, couldn't imagine why Carroll had asked to see him. "I thought I was in trouble or something," Elders said. No trouble. Carroll told Elders that the university had decided to revive the men's track and field program, which had been virtually nonexistent since 1981. And the head coaching job was Elders', if he wanted it.

In 1946, Robert Frost was a forgotten poet. His earlier verse had been anthologized, his recent work criticized and the accolades that made him America's most popular poet were 10 years in coming. Dividing his time between Dartmouth and Boston, a vacation home in Florida and a farm in Ripton, Vt., the 72-year-old writer courted solitude and lived close to his own misfortune: the deaths of his wife, daughter and son.
