The woman of the title, borrowed from pioneering Southwestern writer Mary Austin, provides Stein an image of one who “came and went about our western world,” establishing a saving relationship with the land. The urban poet grapples with the themes of her life: her dying father, her adjunct teaching position, her beautiful but troubled students, as well as the South Central Los Angeles riots and a variety of natural disasters. This is personal poetry with an ecofeminist flavor.

5½ x 8½ inches • 61 pages • ISBN 0-9705344-4-2
