This paean to the high California desert consists of fourteen sketches based on personal observation following solitary sojourns tramping through desert trails and “the streets of the mountains.” Mary Austin, naturalist, feminist, mystic, and poet, wrote thirty-five books and hundreds of articles during her lifetime, but The Land of Little Rain, her first book, is regarded as her masterpiece.
