1924. Mary Hunter Austin, regional writer, whose most successful books, The Land of Little Rain and The Land of Journeys' Ending, grew out of her personal knowledge of the land she lived in. The region she writes about in this book is the high plateau country lying between the Colorado and Rio Grande rivers, the traditional homeland of many of the Indian peoples she studied; the Pueblo, the Zuni, the Hopi, the Navajo. She called it Land of Journeys' Ending because she believed that this part of the Southwest would be the center for a new regional culture-one which would combine the Indian, Spanish and Anglo influences and one which would grow out of a people's successful adaptation to the environment.
