THE BELOVED HOUSE

This is not a biography of Mary Hunter Austin, but an interpretation of the character of her genius as evidenced in her writings. She was significant not only for her literary achievements but for her championship of American background material, of folk themes. Professor Pearce hails her as medicine woman, as prophetess, poetess, story teller, feminist, woman of genius. He traces her backgrounds and her wanderings, her achievements and her failures, and he ends on a note of eulogy.
