The land of little rain by Mary Austin( )

130 editions published between 1903 and 2018 in English and held by 4,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Hunter Austin (1868-1934) moved with her family from Illinois to the desert on the edge of the San Joaquin Valley in 1888. In the next fifteen years she moved from one desert community to another, working on her sketches of desert and Indian life. Spending the last years of her life in Santa Fe, Austin remained a lifelong defender of Native Americans and was recoginzed as an expert in Native American poetry. The Land of little rain (1903), Austin's first book, focused on the arid and semi-arid regions of California between the High Sierras south of Yosemite: the Ceriso, Death Valley, the Mojave Desert; and towns such as Jimville, Kearsarge, and Las Uvas. She wrote of the region's climate, plants, and animals and of its people: the Ute, Paiute, Mojave, and Shoshone tribes; European-American gold prospectors and borax miners; and descendants of Hispanic settlers

Mary Austin's 1917 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

The walking woman by Mary Austin( )

7 editions published between 1995 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Walking Woman is an extended portrait of two women, both on the cusp of invisibility in the American Southwest, braided together in a parable of banishment and atonement. In her lyrical approach to the photographic narrative, Berkeley documents the parallel lives of two strangers, Ruth and Spice, against the sacred beauty of the desert landscape. In doing so, she raises environmental concerns alongside feminist ones, suggesting both to be the products of a capitalist and paternalistic society"--Publisher's website
