Rate this:
Widely known and respected for her nature writing and poetry, Gilean Douglas (1900-1993) was also a journalist, naturalist, farmer, adventurist, and a feminist ahead of her time. Her writings span almost the entire twentieth century. This book both an intriguing biography and a collection of Douglas's best writing. From her childhood in the early 1900s through four marriages, ten years living in a small miner's cabin in a remote and inaccessible area the Cascade Mountains, and forty years on a homestead on Cortes Island. Like no other, Gilean Douglas's story illustrates the changing world for women in the twentieth century.
