“Where There Are Mountains” (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, March 19, 2020
This week I talked with Sarah F. Pearlman about “Where There Are Mountains” her new novella that’s a perfect escape while hunkering down during the current pandemic. The novella brings to life the early Neolithic life about seven thousand years ago. This was a time of great migrations as numerous tribes left the cold & hunger of their northern homeland to travel a path south as they struggled past tribes that lived near the mountain passes of Mount Olympus. The novella focuses on the Matrilineal tribes that worshiped a female divinity. These tribes were peaceful, wanting only a place where there was food & warmth but others on the path were warrior people. These tribes came to conquer & enslave bringing their male gods & creating the beginning of patriarchal conquests. “Where There Are Mountains” is narrated by three women. The first woman tells her adventures traveling the path south through the mountain passes of what would become Greece. The second is her daughter who is captured by a war tribe. The third is a woman from a female-centered tribe perhaps the precursors of Amazons living in woodlands near the mountain passes. “Where There Are Mountains” is a story of captivity, resilience & escape. It was a time of violence but also love. Love of a mother for her daughter. Love between women of different tribes. Sarah F. Pearlman is a teacher, writer, occasional poet & lesbian-feminist activist nationally recognized for her pioneering role in establishing a lesbian psychology. I talked to Pearlman about her inspiration for writing “Where There Are Mountains” & her spin on our LGBTQ issues. “Where There Are Mountains” is available on Amazon. (Artwork Sara Yager) LISTEN
