Summary

Examines the works of seven Adirondack writers.

This book is the first to examine the literary responses of women who lived a significant part of their lives in the Adirondacks. Through the works of seven Adirondack writers, it creates literary and theoretical contexts for these authors by focusing on the links between the landscape and the female imagination. Such an inquiry links this study with Annette Kolodny's and Elaine Showalter's recent studies of fantasy and gender and genre.

Those involved in the study of literature, women's studies, or local history will find this volume a fresh contribution to the growing body of knowledge regarding gender-and-writing and writer-and-region. At the same time, this book offers an engaging literary rendition for the casual reader and wilderness enthusiast.

Kate H. Winter is a Lecturer in the Department of English at the State University of New York at Albany.
