From the Introduction: In 1902, Mary Austin was asked by her publisher to write a description of herself. She wrote: "You are to figure to yourself a small, plain, brown woman, with too much hair, always a little sick, and always busy about the fields in a manner, or so they say in the village, as if I should like to see somebody stop me". As described by Charles Lummis, ".a desert woman, competent, rugged, self-reliant and unconventional." Her writings included here are: The Mother of Felipe; The Truscott Luck; Pahawitz-na'an; The Lost Mine of Fisherman's Peak; and The Ford of Crevecoeur. Bookseller Inventory # 3392
