The paper discusses the novel Solar Storms (1997) by Linda Hogan in the context of eco-feminism. The exploitation of nature, and women likewise, has a common and interlinked theme for the eco -feminists. The healing powers of natural cultural landscapes following a history of 500 years of colonial and cultural oppression and genocide of the American Indian tribes forms the background of the chilling tale. The paper helps shed light on the oppression and subordination of women and ought to be read in conjunction with the brutal and merciless environmental degradation.
