No dust jacket. "Karle Wilson Baker[1878-1960] was the best-known Texas poet of the early twentieth century. Yet, while many of her male contemporaries remain well known to Texas literature, she is not. Her energy and significant role in shaping the literature of Texas equaled those of Walter Prescott Webb or J. Frank Dobie, with whom she ranked as the first Fellows of the Texas Institute of Letters. Her modern lifestyle as an independent, ¿new¿ woman and her active career as a writer, teacher, and lecturer placed her among the avant-garde of women in the nation, although she lived in the small town of Nacogdoches. She was a multi-talented writer with a wide range of interests, yet she championed Texas and the history and natural beauty of East Texas above all else." (Book abstract from Project MUSE) This work of fiction follows the Priest family in The Redlands of east Texas during the discovery of a large oil field there. Among other titles authored by Baker are the following: BURNING BUSH (poetry,1922); OLD COINS (1923); DREAMERS ON HORSEBACK (poetry, 1931); and STAR OF THE WILDERNESS (1942).
