Summary

"Moving the Mountain" is a feminist utopian novel written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. It was published serially in Perkins Gilman's periodical The Forerunner and then in book form, both in 1911. The book was one element in the major wave of utopian and dystopian literature that marked the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The novel was also the first volume in Gilman's utopian trilogy; it was followed by the famous "Herland" (1915) and its sequel, "With Her in Ourland" (1916). John Robertson, lost in Tibet for thirty years, is finally brought back to America by his sister Nellie, only to find his society completely transformed.

opened my mind and stirred my thoughts

this book was interesting and was a gateway to so many other thoughts I don't always have foremost on my mind. I love books that make me stop and think about things
