A book born from a conference on women nature writers that was directed by Elizabeth De Wolfe, Ph.D., professor of history and co-founder of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program, is now published on DUNE: DigitalUNE, the digital institutional repository designed to collect, preserve, and provide access to the creative and scholarly works and unique resources of the UNE Community.

De Wolfe co-edited the book, Such News of the Land: U.S. Women Nature Writers, with former UNE faculty member Tom Edwards.

The book is a collection of essays from the conference, featuring scholars in a variety of fields, while illuminating the work of two centuries of American women nature writers.

Some discuss traditional nature writers such as Susan Fenimore Cooper, Mary Austin, Gene Stratton Porter and Annie Dillard.

Others examine the work of Zora Neale Hurston, Gloria Anzaldua, and Leslie Marmon Silko, writers not often associated with this genre.  

The cover photo for the book is by UNE’s Laura Taylor, M.S.I.S., metadata librarian.
