"The Road to the Spring: Collected Poems of Mary Austin offers an expansive compendium of poetry spanning Austin’s literary career, which allows readers to see the development and enactment of her poetics. . . . The collection’s greatest contribution may be that it helps us to see Austin’s ‘feet run wide of the rutted trails / Toward the undared destinies.’"—Interdisciplinary Studies of Literature and Environment

"Mary Austin was a gifted, intellectually forceful figure who was also among the first American writers to explore and celebrate the literary and aesthetic importance of arid landscapes and the Native American cultures that inhabit them. This book represents a genuinely substantial and important contribution."—Michael Branch, editor of Reading the Roots: American Nature Writing before Walden

  The Road to the Spring Collected Poems of Mary Austin

  Mary Austin was an American writer of short stories, essays, novels, plays, and poetry from the 1890s to 1934. Remembered for her focus on the peoples and environments of Southwestern deserts, she is often thought of solely as a regional author, but she was also a part of early twentieth-century New York’s literary scene and the Imagist movement in Modernist poetry. James Perrin Warren is S. Blount Mason, Jr. Professor of English at Washington and Lee University. He is the author of John Burroughs and the Place of Nature, Culture of Eloquence: Oratory and Reform in Antebellum America, and Walt Whitman’s Language Experiment, and has been published in numerous journals and edited collections.
