Sally Gearhart reads from her book "The wanderground: stories of the hill women" (Boston: Persephone Press, 1978), a feminist fantasy fiction account of a separate woman's culture wherein the women have highly developed psychic powers, have children parthenogenetically, and live in harmony with all the rest of the Earth, except the men who control the cities. Part A features the chapters "Openings" and a portion of "The remember rooms." Part B continues the chapter called "The remember rooms." Part C contains a reading of the chapters "Krueva and the pony" and "Ijeme's story."
