I enjoyed the book. It's pretty far outside my usual range being both based on real life and historical. It's written as if a memoir by the author's grandmother who was born in 1901 in far west Texas. Most of the action takes place in New Mexico and Arizona. Lily Casey led a hard, but impressive life. She was a real badass. Though clearly a product of her time: There's some casual racism in the book presented as normal, for instance. #books
It's a book about the West after the death of the West, as it were. If you like stories about badass ladies making the best of a really tough life, you should check this one out. #books
