This is the first book-length collection of essays on Mary Austin's work that covers the range of her writing in varied genres. Austin is revealed as a writer wrestling with issues that continue to challenge us today, including water in the arid West; social and environmental justice as it relates to indigenous peoples, women, and the working class; and the consequences of rigidly hierarchical thinking for western lands and people.
