Just finished Herland by Chalotte Perkins Gilman. It is in the genre of utopian/dystopian studies and is about a lost secluded county inhabited only by women.

I liked Herland although it was written mostly from the perspective of one of the visitors. It had a certain humor to it. The men coming into the land of only women look around and say, "This place looks really civilized, there must be men around somewhere." :-)

Now I have started reading Wrapped in a Flag but don't know if I will continue as I read a very similar book some years back. It is about a right-wing extremist organization, the John Birch Society.
