"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 theterritory 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 astirin 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 fewhuman beings who
inhabit the land, including cattlemen, miners, and Paiute Indians.
