New LibriVox: Moving the Mountain

Elizabeth’s latest solo recording for LibriVox is Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s utopian novel Moving the Mountain (1911), which is now ready for download. This is the first novel in Gilman’s utopian trilogy, which also includes the famous novel Herland (1915). (Elizabeth has also recorded part of Herland for LibriVox.) In Moving the Mountain, John Robertson has been lost in Tibet for thirty years, and when he finally returns to America, he finds his society has been completely transformed into a feminist and socialist utopia. Gilman’s novel engages in the political and social debates of her time, but also introduces ideas that are still relevant today.
