The Rancher's Daughters: Behaving Herself
I have to admit when I first picked up the book The Rancher's Daughter: Behaving Herself I was excited about the read but it was a little slow to get into. Audra was testing my nerves as well as Jack's! But as I kept turning the pages I learned why she was the way she was and I felt her pain and shame over the terrible scandal. Indeed Jack was one of the best gamblers that I have ever read and ...
The Woman Who Spilled Words All Over Herself : Writing and Living the Zona Rosa Way
This could have saved me years of stumbling in the dark
I was a little skeptical about a new-age-y writing book--another writer urging us wannabes to spill words. But Rosemary Daniell won me over. First of all, she's really practicing what she preaches--and not for the money. The first chapter, from which the title was taken, describes her experiences teaching writing in schools and prisons. It's the intersection of her greatest love and the greatest ...
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself
Public Domain Books, 2004
Should Be On Every Reading List
I won't go into details as that has already been well covered by other reviewers, but this book should be required reading in every high school. The coverage in American school texts does not do enough to emphasize the level of savagery in the South and the complicity of the Northern states in the promotion and continuation of slavery by a 'Christian' nation. I couldn't put this book ...

Color Me Sensitive: A Woman's Journey to Find Herself Through Disease
June Saunders Grayson
1st Books Library
A Positive Message
June Saunders Grayson has given the reader, in every sense, an uncensored, unselfish, very private look at a person who will cause most of us to really take a very hard look at the footsteps in the sand. This story is read, however, more like a personal, breathtaking conversation with the author. I could feel her pain of the debilitating outside forces, the strength of her determination, her ...

Isak Dinesen Herself: Telling Two Stories/the King's Letter/the Wine of the Tetrarch
Dinesen reminds us of the power of the oral tradition.
This is a wonderful recording which I fear will soon be plunged into obscurity for a while due to the relative rarity of cassette tape players. Someone should immediately burn this into a CD or make it available for downloading. These stories were meant to be heard. The first thing you notice is the strange, deep voice, frail and powerful at the same time. Simply as a feat of memory for a ...
Written by Herself: Autobiographies of American Women: An Anthology
Brilliant compilation of women's stories
Jill Ker Conway is a good writer and editor. She has collected here a group of American women's stories, all of which are fascinating. Before each memoir, she writes a short explanation, but it is the women's stories that stick with you. The ones that stuck with me most were the one of the escaping slave woman, who hid in an attic crawl space for almost a year, so desperate was she for ...
I have just reread Cary's three novels, Herself Surprised, To Be a Pilgrim and The Horse's Mouth. It is amzing that books written during the second world war should be so secure in their tone about a vanishing England and its history. Cary uses his three entirely diffeent voices - tricky sensuous woman, nervy religious dirty old man, obsessed manipulative artist- better than anyone else i know ...

Wish my girls had this inspiration when they were children!
The best book I have ever read for making the link between wonderful acts of imagination and/or courage in childhood and the larger than life heros these women became.This has got to be a christmas or birthday book for reading to or by girls from 5 to 10.

I love it! It's got a ton of basic recipes plus lots of original ones. In the back it's got bunches of info on substitutions, measurements, cooking tips, cleaning tips, handy person tips, and last but not least, how to save the earth! My favorite: #75.

University of Illinois Press
A classic that stands the test of time
Last year I had to do a research paper about three American authors for an English class. I picked Edna Ferber as one of the authors, hoping that I would be able to relate better to a female author. I was at first skeptical about the book, because I'm not a big fan of classic books, but I sat down with it and after a few hours of convincing, I finally opened the book. To this day I'm still glad ...
