About this title


Written in resonant, poetic prose, this tale about overcoming fear and hatred takes place in a time before modern machines or long after their fall. In a harsh, primitive world, an almond-eyed girl named Sarah and her family are threatened by a severe drought. Sarah's imagination and her fascination with the mysteries of nature lead the local villagers to believe she is an evil demon and the cause of the drought.

From the Publisher:

Resonant and poetic in its simplicity, this is the story of a young girl who uses the hidden forms and patterns of the natural world to transform herself as well as her enemies. The Woman Who Lives in the Earth invites us to understand the world in a different way, to overcome fear and hatred and to become re-enchanted by wonder and beauty. This modern classic delivers a powerful message of hope to all who fall under its spell.

"Wolfe writes with enough grace that you never feel preached at but you do feel convinced." -- USA Today
"A kind of mutant message down under the last frontier." -- Esquire
"The Woman Who Lives in the Earth is finding a home in the hearts and minds of those who have read it." -- The Salt Lake Tribune
"The Woman Who Lives in the Earth will become a classic." -- Bloomsbury Review
"Beautiful and profound, both fantastical and utterly real. Swain Wolfe has given us a truly useful story, a moral fable for these and all times." -- William Kittredge
