The Land of Little Rain

Print
Written by Mary Austin

This classic book, first published in 1903, breathes life and wonder into a dry and unforgiving landscape, the desert and foothill lands between Death Valley and the High Sierras.  Dry and seemingly empty, this collection of essays answers the question:  "If one is inclined to wonder at first how so many dwellers came to be in the loneliest land that ever came out of God's hands, what they do there and why stay, on does not wonder so much after having lived there."  For those who love nature, this classic is a "must read."
