This book brings to life the extraordinary Lily Casey, born in 1901. Witten as a novel, the story is told through Lily Casey`s voice, giving shape to her character. An independent and resilient woman, her amazing real-life adventures provide a view into the era that eclipse any history book. The novel begins with the inspiring episode of an 11 year-old Lily using her wits during a flash flood at her childhood home in West Texas, saving herself and her young brother and sister. She began a teaching career at the age of 15, riding her horse Patches on a lone journey 500 miles through New Mexico and Arizona to her first post in a one-room schoolhouse, where she taught during the day and slept on the floor at night. Continuing through to her later years, this is a rich story, amazing, sometimes heartbreaking, and altogether a wonderful read.

I read this book in two evenings and was amazed by Lily.As I said it kind of reminded me of my mother,a woman who during hard times and the good times soldiered on during the Great Depression.Lost her father,a railway man,in 1918 during her early teen years and being the eldest of six she taught with the help of her mother,her siblings who all turned out well.They were so poor that if the mud pout were not biting they sometimes didn't eat.A tough lady who passed on her knowledge to my siblings and I.God bless her and Lily too.

Of course I loved this author's other book: The Glass Castle much, much more, but this was still a good read.

Really good book about life early in the century - she was one strong lady! I recommend to anyone interested in the early West.
