If you are looking for a great book, consider Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls (author of The Glass Castle). My mom gave this to me last week and I just finished it. It is a great book if you believe yourself to be a strong, independent woman. The protagonist is the prototype of the stong, ahead of her time female. And when I say strong I mean STRONG. I'm talking the type who spends days on the dry plains of Arizons rangling cattle, who sold bootleg liquor out of her back door and who road 500 miles by herself via a horse at the age of 12, just to get an education.
The book made me want to get up and stop complaining. GREAT READ! Thanks Mom
