He began publishing his works in 1890. He was greatly influenced by his acquaintance with Maxim Gorky and by his participation in the Znanie (Knowledge) collections, which published his best works, including the novella In the Parish (1903), and the novel The Land of the Fathers (1905). Gusev-Orenburgsky wrote about the impoverishment of the Russian countryside and criticized the church and its ministers. The Land of the Fathers depicts the development of revolutionary events in the city and countryside and creates the image of the peasant-revolutionary.
