In addition to her essays and short stories, Austin produced novels, poems, and cultural criticism, and was well known as a feminist, political writer, and mystic. Over the past decade a number of Austin's books have been reissued and her work has been the subject of increasing critical attention. Heike Schaefer's study complements that renewed interest with a fresh, broad appreciation of the complexity of Austin's work. Considering unpublished materials and the full range of Austin's literary and theoretical writing, Mary Austin's Regionalism presents Austin as a significant early twentieth-century author who reworked the traditions of nature writing and women's regionalism to envision a sustainable and democratic American culture. Austin brought an environmental awareness to the exploration of the race, gender, and class dynamics informing the European American colonization of the West.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:publisher>Charlottesville [u.a.] : University of Virginia Press</dc:publisher> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
