Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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 the territory that Mary Austin calls the Land of Little Rain. Austin vividly describes the landscape, from burnt hills to sun-baked mesas, and the few human beings who occupy the land — cattlemen, miners, and Paiute Indians. This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the original 1903 edition.
