Beyond the lawn a butter-cup meadow - one rolling sheet of gold shining up to the sun. Around, a wood of ancient beeches threaded by a disused Roman by-road moss-dimmed and plumed with fern." "Katherine Mayo (January 27, 1867 October 9, 1940) was an American researcher and historian. Mayo entered public life as a political writer advocating White Anglo-Saxon Protestant Nativism, opposition to non-white and Catholic immigration to the United States, and opposition to the recently emancipated African-American laborers....Mayo became notorious for her polemical book Mother India (1927), in which she attacked Hindu society and religion, and the culture of India. Critics of Mayo accuse her works of being racist, pro-imperialist and Indophobic tracts that "expressed all the dominant prejudices of colonial society." The book created a sensation on three continents. Written against the demands for self-rule and Indian independence from the British Raj, Mayo alluded to the treatment of India's women, the Dalits, the animals, the dirt and the character of its nationalistic politicians"
