Summary
Mary Hunter Austin, foremost American woman of letters, believed that her life had been lived symbolically. "I have seen America emerging," she wrote, "the America which is the expression of the life activities of the environment." In the Illinois country, where her background was that of pioneer Southern and Midwestern families, she observed the rugged qualities which sent the American conquest across a continent. In California and New Mexico she encountered earlier settlements, Indian and Spanish, with folkways courageous to master the land and live in harmony with it. Travel in England, France, and Italy offered to her opportunities to study society. It was a continuous search for what was best in individual and social relationships. The family of mankind could live in a Beloved House if the search was successful. Mary Austin held a facile pen, which could turn to brushwork of the lovely natural scenes in California or Italy. But it could also dip into astringent to describe society in either place. To the tradition of Emerson, Thoreau, and John Muir the author of The Beloved House adds Mary Austin, naturist, feminist, poet, storyteller, outstanding woman thinker of America, and important figure in America's premanent contribution to world literature -- Book jacket
