Synopsis

First published in 1903, The Land of Little Rain is Mary Austin's classic homage to the American Southwest. Her collection of short stories and essays takes readers on an enchanted journey through Death Valley, the High Sierras, and the Mojave Desert. This first-ever audiobook edition is read by Emmy Award-winning actress, Ellen Parker, and received an Audiofile Earphones Award.

Mary Hunter Austin (1868-1934) traveled extensively in the American Southwest. “Between the high Sierras south from Yosemite—east and south over a very great assemblage of broken ranges beyond Death Valley, and on illimitably into the Mojave Desert” is the place she designated The Land of Little Rain, and so titled her first book. Her evocative sketches of life there, among the flora and fauna of the desert ecosystems, are mystical and life-affirming.
