Mary Austin s i The Land of Little Rain i and i Lost Borders i both set in the California desert make intimate connections between animals people and the land they inhabit For Austin the two indispensable conditions of her fiction were that the region must enter the story as another character as the instigator of plot and that the story must reflect the essential qualities of the land br br In i The Land of Little Rain i Austin s attention to natural detail allows her to write prose that is geologically biologically and botanically accurate at the same time that it offers metaphorical insight into human emotional and spiritual experience In i Lost Borders i Austin focuses on both white and Indian women s experiences in the desert looks for the sources of their deprivation and finds them in the ways life betrays them usually in the guise of men She offers several portraits of strong women characters but ultimately identifies herself with the desert which she personifies as a woman, A short story depicting the frontier towns of America and the mysterious woman who walks between them, Mary Austin s novel illuminates one of the crucial issues in California history the usurpation of water from the Owens Valley Ranging from the eastern Sierra to the financial district in San Francisco the plot portrays the frenzied speculation in land and resources labor protests and feminist organizing of the time exemplified in the successful efforts of an independent young woman to buy back her family s Owens Valley ranch br br, Between the high Sierras south from Yosemite east and south over a very great assemblage of broken ranges beyond Death Valley and on illimitably into the Mojave Desert is the territory that Mary Austin calls the Land of Little Rain In this classic collection of meditations on the wonders of this region Austin generously shares such news of the land of its trails and what is astir in them as one lover of it can give to another Her vivid writings capture the landscape from burnt hills to sun baked mesas as well as the rich variety of plant and animal life and the few human beings who inhabit the land including cattlemen miners and Paiute Indians This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the original edition
