Published a year later, the book, Taos Pueblowas printed in a limited edition of only copies. It was produced in a limited edition of copies, each signed by Adams. Starry Adventure The end of the story expresses Austin's discontent at how people have dealt with the weather by determining the best seasons to plant crops rather than by musing about the "eternal meanings of the skies".

    The book describes the life of a gifted woman in a conventional world, and Austin makes a convincing case for the oppression of women through the examples of prejudice she personally experienced. As such, these people create communal towns that have cultural harmony and closeness to God and are free from crime and class distinctions. She believed it was important to not pollute or destroy the natural landscape and spent a great deal of her time communing with natural beauty. Austin portrays Jimville as a small town set in a harsh environment and inhabited by simple yet endearing toughs.

These animals must work within the limitations of the land, allowing their trails to be followed and their prey to have a haven, in order for their entire ecosystem to function and survive.
