Ella Higginson’s writing shows us a woman obsessed with the natural world and humankind’s position within it. Displaced to the remote Pacific Northwest at a young age, Higginson had ample time to explore and write about her own relationship with the mostly untouched Nature that surrounded her. As a devout Protestant woman in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it would be fair to expect the depictions of Nature that arise in her work to reflect a Christian-American worldview.
