  Rural Hours should interest students of American geography, history, and literature as an important early work of nature writing. It is a significant literary achievement by a woman who has too long languished in the shadow of her famous fatherLouise WestlingPages: Her book, Rural Hours, is her only naturalist text, but she is an important figure because she urged nature conservation at a time when this was not explored deeply or put into effect.
