Reviews: Sally Miller Gearhart

The Wanderground: Stories of the Hill Women (Watertown, Mass.: Persephone Press, 1978).

The Wanderground is a central lesbian separatist text from the 70s. In near-future earth, Mother Nature has revolted from the abuse heaped upon her: technology does not work and men are impotent outside of cities. Women (the hill-women) have created an alternate society based on psychic skills, communion with nature, and parthenogenesis. Women also infiltrate the cities (still run by straight men) and work with male homosexuals (the "gentles"). Gearhart has also co-authored the Feminist Tarot, which can be used either with its own set of cards, or to interpret traditional tarot. For similarly themed material, see Rochelle Singer's Demeter Flower.
