No Place for a Puritan
No Place for a Puritan
Ruth Nolan, editor

No Place for a Puritan brings together eighty writers and a poet to pay homage to a land that has been feared and romanticized throughout the ages. From the traditional stories of the Cahuilla Indians to Joan Didion’s acerbic cast of characters in Play it as it Lays, from Mary Austin’s meditations in The Land of Little Rain to the writings of today’s young and emerging authors, this anthology unfolds the many stories of the California desert with freshness, drama, delicacy, and surprise.
