Abstract

The Interconnected Bioregion Transregional Networks in Mary Austin’s The Ford John Peterson If you stand on our front porch and train your ear to the west, you will hear Little Santa Anita Creek. The water flowing through this creek originates in the San Gabriel Mountains, the craggy, chaparral-covered range that serves as the northern border for much of metropolitan Los Angeles, as well as the small town of Sierra Madre where my family and I live. Little Santa Anita Creek spills out of the San Gabriel Mountains into a granite-lined wash that winds through the canyon where our house stands, following a southeasterly course until it reaches the settling ponds that Sierra Madre uses to recharge the Raymond Basin aquifer, historically the city’s main source of water. In fact, since the founding of Sierra Madre in 1881 the city has depended entirely on local sources of water, a point of civic pride that residents have used to distinguish themselves from surrounding communities within Los Angeles County. This distinction is further sharpened by Little Santa Anita Creek’s historical relationship to the Los Angeles River.
