Nora Burba Trulsson

AFAR Contributor

Years ago, Nora fell in love with the desert Southwest and moved to Arizona from Chicago. Since then, she has spent decades writing about architecture and design, travel, lifestyle, people, sustainability and other topics for local, regional and national publications and websites. She was on the founding editorial teams for Phoenix Home & Garden, Southwest Passages and Sources+Design magazines, and has co-authored three design books–Desert Southwest (Bantam Books), Desert Southwest Gardens(Bantam Books) and Living Homes: Sustainable Architecture and Design (Chronicle Books).

As an Arizona travel writer, she has covered topics from the wild burros that roam the streets of Oatman and the murky history of the chimichanga to the grandeur of the Grand Canyon and volunteerism at Arizona’s beloved state parks.
