At fifteen, she left home to teach in a frontier town -- riding five hundred miles on her pony to get to her post. She learned to drive a car, fly a plane, and with her husband, managed a vast ranch in Arizona. She raised two children, one of whom is Jeannette's memorable mother, Rosemary Smith Walls, unforgettably portrayed in The Glass Castle. Smith, Jeannette Walls's no-nonsense, resourceful, and spectacularly compelling grandmother. 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, or anyone else who didn't fit the mold.Hide synopsis

Well-paced, western story not encumbered by traditional romanticized notions found in the genre. Able to provide a realistic glimpse into life during a particular interest period of US history while keeping things relatively light and entertaining.
If you've read The Glass Castle by Waller, you'll find Half Broke Horses is a more cheerful book. Having lived in the Mid-West for many years, I appreciate the pioneer spirit so evident in this "creative non-fiction". However, several events in Waller's first book, now make better sense after reading ...
Probably one of the best books I have read in the last year. It is one of those that is hard to put down until you have finished reading it....and then wishing there was more.
The author has the gift of making you feel like you are there from beginning to end.
