Not bad, though not good, as far as the story goes - and fantastic descriptions of the land and plants of Southern California. However, it's spoiled by rampant racism. A large part of the driver of the story is the "Jap" in a high school class, and how he's at the top of the class - which is a shame to all whites (cue long rants about the Yellow Peril (she literally uses those words)) and besides all they can do is imitate so the white boy should figure out some new way to come at the questions and leave the Jap in the dust...ugh. And when the white boy does top him in class, there are mysterious attempts on the white boy's life, based on other "Japs" being willing to stab the white boy in the back to help the "Jap" in the class. It's so incredibly stupid - textbook othering and disparaging. I repeat, UGH. And it's so much of a driver I don't think it could be removed from the book without major surgery. Other than that, it's an OK romance, of an odd sort - the heroine is so much her father's daughter that she's never really learned anything about being feminine. Despite (or because of) this, she has at least three men after her (politely) for most of the book. Oh yes, there's a second villain - who is totally underhanded, as well as being romantically pushy, but this is put on him rather than on all...white men (can't), men from (wherever he's from, not local), short men...whatever. It's that one individual who's a villain - so she knew how to do it, but didn't apply that technique to the boy (who isn't such a boy) in the school. Anyway, it ends up with the heroine putting herself entirely in the hands of an older man - given how much, throughout the book, she's demonstrated self-confidence and ability, this rings a wrong note. I don't know. The more I think about it the less I like it. The descriptions of the countryside, and the discussions of how to eat and otherwise use the plants there, are fantastic. But the story itself ranges from barely readable to unacceptable. ( )

Loved this one in my teens! Belonged to my mother and I loved the Stutz Bearcat that figured prominently in the storyline

Written well before the Second World War, this novel is apt to make modern readers wince with its casual destruction of fragile ecosystems and vicious anti-Asian racism. At times Stratton-Porter's attitudes come very close to what would today be regarded as white supremacist thinking. The heroine, Linda, advocates simple and "sensible" living, but ideas of what is "sensible" have certainly changed in 80+ years' time. ( )
