Mary Hunter Austin (September 9, 1868 – August 13, 1934) was an American writer. One of the early nature writers of the American Southwest, her classic The Land of Little Rain (1903) describes the fauna, flora and people – as well as evoking the mysticism and spirituality – of the region between the High Sierra and the Mojave Desert of southern California.
Mary Austin published her autobiography in 1932 near the end of her long and creative career. Black & White Illustrations. After graduation from Blackburn College, she moved with her family to California. A prolific writer, she wrote novels, short stories, essays, plays and poetry. As always true to her special individualism, she wrote this book sometimes in the first person voice and sometimes in the third person.
