In this category, I place writers such as Ann LaBastille and her Woodswoman:
Living Alone in the Adirondack Wilderness. Ms. LaBastille has had a bold and
interesting life and documents the process of going it alone. But the book raises
no environmental, social, and political issues of significance and therefore was
left out. Helen Hoover's A Place in the Woods is more interesting but raises a
similar set of concerns regarding my interest in her writing. Zane Grey, a writer of
westerns, ...

Indeed, in Woodswoman she brackets environmental problems such as acid rain,
ostensibly unwilling to allow outside health threats to impede her narrative of a "
wholesome" experience in a "pristine" sanctuary. The paradigm of regeneration
through wilderness, however, is complicated in the second and third Adirondack
memoirs, as additional pollutions invade LaBastille's peace. Woodswoman:
Living Alone in the Adirondack Wilderness The impetus for LaBastille's
settlement in the ...
