Summary Over the past century, women artists and writers have expressed diverse creative responses to the landscape of the Southwest. "The Desert Is No Lady" provides a cross-cultureal perspective on women by examining Anglo, Hispanic, and Native American women's artistic expressions and the effect of their art in defining the southwestern landscape. "The Desert Is No Lady " has been made into a motion picture of the same title by Women Make movies, New York, NY "A beautifully crafted book. . . . Although it varies in intensity, the response of women to the environment is virtually always different from the male frontiersman's view of the land as inanimate, boundless, conquerable and controllable." --Polly Wells Kaufman in "Women's Review of Books" "A powerful masterpiece." --Eve Gruntfest in "The Professional Geographer"
