21 BLEW, MARY CLEARMAN. Bone Deep In Landscape: Writing, Reading,00 And Place.

Great-granddaughter of homesteaders in north-central Montana, Mary Clearman Blew grew up in one of the last vestiges of the rural frontier. Her girlhood chores--hauling water and rounding up cattle--were remote even to her town-bred classmates in the forties and fifties. It was a girlhood she now recalls realistically, with affection but without nostalgia. Many others have written about this land, its people, and its history, and Blew examines portrayals of the West in some of their writing, including B. M. Bower's Chip of the Flying U and the novels of Dorothy M. Johnson and A. B. Guthrie, Jr. Always her discussions are permeated with landscape and memory. Her essays interlock nature writing, autobiography, literary criticism, and history in a collection that reflects a woman's life in the Rocky Mountain West. Blew immerses readers in a landscape of mountains and prairies, blizzards and scorching sun, and in a regional history in which Indians lose the landscape to white settlers, who find the living tough. Bone Deep in Landscape demonstrates Mary Clearman Blew's commitments to place as a source of knowing and to living consciously--as writer, mother, scholar, and western woman. Mary Clearman Blew is Professor of English and Creative Writing at the University of Idaho, Moscow. She is the author of Bone Deep in Landscape, Balsamroot: A Memoir, Lambing Out And Other Stories (University of Oklahoma Press) and Sister Coyote: Montana Stories and is coeditor of Circle of Women: An Anthology of Contemporary Western Women's Writing.

33 BURNHAM, MICHELLE. Folded Selves: Colonial New England Writing In The World System.
University Press of New England, Lebanon: 2007. 1584656182 / 9781584656180 First Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Radically refigures traditional portraits of seventeenth-century New England literature and culture by situating colonial writing within the spatial, transnational, and economic contexts that characterized the early-modern "world system" theorized by Immanuel Wallerstein and others. Michelle Burnham rethinks American literary history and the politics of colonial dissent, and her book breaks new ground in making the economic relations of investment, credit, and trade central to this new framework for early American literary and cultural study. Transcontinental colonialism and mercantile capitalism underwrote not just the emerging world system but New World writing—suggesting that early modern literary aesthetics and the early modern economy helped to sponsor each other. Burnham locates in New England's literature of dissent—from Ma-re Mount to the Salem witchcraft trials - a persistent use of economic language, as well as competing economies of style. The brilliance of Burnham's study is that it exposes the transoceanic material and commercial concerns of colonial America's literature and culture of dissent. The contents of the book is as follows: List of Figures • Acknowledgments • Introduction: Colonial Folds and the Space of Dissent • Investment: Uncertain Certainty and the Economic Subject • Merchants: William Bradford and Plain Style • Inflation: Thomas Morton and Trading-Post Pastoral • Vent: Anne Hutchinson and Antinomian Selfhood • Equivalence: Roger Williams and the Typology of Trade • Debt: Salem Witchcraft and Paper Money • Epilogue: Economies of Possession and Dissent • Notes • Works Cited • Index.
