Earth Horizon (Southwest Heritage). Mary Austin's writings reflect her life, and her autobiography is a solid image of the world as it changed from her birth in 1864 to her death in 1934. On the forefront of American women writers, Austin's intellectual analysis and insights of her world, gender roles, education, art, and politics provide the reader a mirror of the Middlewest, Austin's birthplace, then Eastern California and the Southwest, ending with her focus on Carmel and Santa Fe.

Autobiography by the American author Mary Hunter Austin published in 1932. Most famous for her Western literature and writings on Indian life. Over half the book involves her early years before moving west.

Earth Horizon (1932), autobiography. Hoffman, Abraham, Mary Austin, Stafford Austin, and the Owens Valley, Journal of the Southwest, 53 (Autumn–Winter 2011), 305–22.

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.

Mary Austin published her autobiography in 1932 near the end of her long and creative career. Earth Horizon is both an account of her personal life and of her development as a writer. As always true to her special individualism, she wrote this book sometimes in the first person voice and sometimes in the third person. Using this literary device enabled her to speak frankly about her life while also commenting on the events and decisions that formed and influenced her life and writing. Earth Horizon is not only unique in its approach but brings a special psychological interest to the subject of autobiography.

The book is "as advertised". It arrived quickly. Just what I wanted. The author of this book (Mary Hunter Austin) grew up in my county's, county seat of Carlinville, IL It's interesting as an autobiography and history of this town.

First published in 1932, this is Mary Austin's autobiography. But how odd that it's written in third person. This makes for a strange read. However, you do get a good glimpse into a bygone era. Born in 1868, Austin later insisted upon going to college. She became a teacher, began writing and left her marriage. She knew other writers and eventually Mabel Dodge Luhan, the doyen of Taos, invited her for a visit. Austin became known as a lecturer and writer on issues of social justice. She also wrote novels, plays, short stories and poetry. She eventually built a home in Santa Fe where such figures as Willa Cather and Ansel Adams were frequent visitors. The writing is in the style from that time. In spots it's a little flowery; other passages are a little ponderous. Historically, though, it's great.

I ordered this book after being assigned excerpts from it in a literature class. The excerpts changed my life. The book was different, but even better than the little bits I had read. It's about the turn of the last century from a woman's perspective. It gave some insights on early feminism and the suffragettes that I had not expected, which were fascinating. I love how she simply tells her story, without propagandizing for a point. And it was wonderful to read about how my home state, California, looked a hundred years ago.
This book discusses, in very personal terms, faith, motherhood, marriage, careers, family, and wonder of nature. I highly recommend it.
