Jeannette Walls's brings us the story of her grandmother -- told in a voice so authentic and compelling that the book is destined to become an instant classic.
""Those old cows knew trouble was coming before we did."" So begins the story of Lily Casey Smith, in Jeannette Walls's magnificent, true-life novel based on her no-nonsense, resourceful, hard working, and spectacularly compelling grandmother. By age six, Lily was helping her father break horses. At fifteen, she left home to teach in a frontier town -- riding five hundred miles on her pony, all alone, to get to her job. She learned to drive a car ("I loved cars even more than I loved horses. They didn't need to be fed if they weren't working, and they didn't leave big piles of manure all over the place") and fly a plane, and, with her husband, ran a vast ranch in Arizona. She raised two children.
Lily survived tornadoes, droughts, floods, the Great Depression, and the most heartbreaking personal tragedy. She bristled at prejudice of all kinds -- against women, Native Americans, and anyone else who didn't fit the mold.

Väldigt vacker och gripande bok om en mycket egensinnig och stark flicka som sedan blir en mycket egensinnig och stark kvinna. Lily är född kring sekelskiftet (1901 om jag minns rätt), och boken ger även en bra bild av hur livet kunde te sig för fattiga människor som jobbade allt de kunde i 1900-talets USA. Boken rekommenderas varmt!
