    I never knew a girl to have such gumption, Mom would say But I m not too sure that s a good thingHalf Broke HorsesI loved this book It s a true life novel about Walls grandmother, Lily Casey, who had an amazing life She was born in 1901 in a dugout in Texas, and learned about ranching from her father At 15, she left home to be a teacher in a one room schoolhouse in Arizona She was also an accomplished horsewoman, she knew how to repair cars and she learned how to fly a plane LiI never knew a girl to have such gumption, Mom would say But I m not too sure that s a good thingHalf Broke HorsesI loved this book It s a true life novel about Walls grandmother, Lily Casey, who had an amazing life She was born in 1901 in a dugout in Texas, and learned about ranching from her father At 15, she left home to be a teacher in a one room schoolhouse in Arizona She was also an accomplished horsewoman, she knew how to repair cars and she learned how to fly a plane Lily reminded me of my own grandmother, who also had a lot of gumption and who could teach you a thing or two about life.There were so many good quotes in the book, but one of my favorites is from when she started college I wished I could take every course in the curriculum and read every book in the library Sometimes after I finished a particularly good book, I had the urge to get the library card, find out who else had read the book, and track them down to talk about it Lily Casey is the kind of character who stays with you long after you ve finished the book What a woman Update I finally read The Glass Castle, and even though Walls wrote that first, I m glad I read Horses first because it gave the story of her grandmother, and then Castle is about Walls mother There are some references to Lily Casey in Castle, and I appreciated themhaving already read Horses So if you re new to Walls, I would recommend reading Horses first

    Jeannette Walls s original intent was to write a book about her mother Rose Mary s childhood on an Arizona ranch Rose Mary convinced her that it was grandmother Lily s life story that needed to be told Having read the book, I have to agree What a life Hard times and hard work in the early 1900s, trying to scratch out a life on ranches in Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico Lily lived on Route 66 when it was still a dirt road Walls chose to call the book a novel because she got all the stories s Jeannette Walls s original intent was to write a book about her mother Rose Mary s childhood on an Arizona ranch Rose Mary convinced her that it was grandmother Lily s life story that needed to be told Having read the book, I have to agree What a life Hard times and hard work in the early 1900s, trying to scratch out a life on ranches in Texas, Arizona, and New Mexico Lily lived on Route 66 when it was still a dirt road Walls chose to call the book a novel because she got all the stories secondhand, from Lily s daughter Rose Mary However, I m shelving it as a nonfiction memoir It reads like a memoir, and the stories are true Walls wrote it in the first person, as if Lily Casey Smith were telling you her life story After awhile I got so into it that I forgot it wasn t really Lily speaking Walls is such a gifted writer The stories come alive and move along so easily If you ve read The Glass Castle, you ll also appreciate the insight Half Broke Horses gives about how Rose Mary s early life made her the unconventional mother she later became If you re not the type to normally enjoy biographies, I recommend giving this book a try It s relatively short and never boring or overdone

    One way to really get me pissed off is to tell me that the past was innocent and simple What you really mean when you say that is that your childhood was innocent and simple, which is probably also debatable, but at least seems fair from a nostalgic standpoint The farther we look back to our childhoods, theinnocent life seems, and so things that happened before we were born must be the most innocent No Not true People have always been just about as fucked up as we are now I would say One way to really get me pissed off is to tell me that the past was innocent and simple What you really

theinnocent life seems, and so things that happened before we were born must be the most innocent No Not true People have always been just about as fucked up as we are now I would say we ve never been significantly better or significantly worse That is why I love honest memoirs and biographies like this one It is tough to even wrap my brain around the amazing and horrible things people have done and still do, and I want to hear about all of it.As you probably know, Jeannette Walls wrote Half Broke Horses about her grandmother s insane life Talk about a real life superhero The book starts out with a harrowing description of Lily, Walls s grandmother, saving her little brother and sister from a flash flood by making them climb a cottonwood tree and cling there overnight while the flood subsided She quizzed them on multiplication tables and trivia to keep them awake through the night so they didn t fall out of the tree In the morning, when the children limped home through the residual water from the flood, Walls describes their reunion with their parents Dad was on the porch, pacing back and forth in that uneven stride he had on account of his gimp leg When he saw us, he let out a yelp of delight and started hobbling down the steps toward us Mom came running out of the house She sank to her knees, clasped her hands in front of her, and started praying up to the heavens, thinking the Lord for delivering her children from the flood.It was she who saved us, she declared, by staying up all night praying You get down on your knees and thank your guardian angel, she said And you thank me, too Helen and Buster got down and started praying with Mom, but I just stood there looking at them The way I saw it, I was the one who d saved us all, not Mom and not some guardian angel No one was up in that cottonwood tree except the three of us Dad came alongside me and put his arm around my shoulders There weren t no guardian angel, Dad, I said I started explaining how I d gotten us to the cottonwood tree in time, figuring out how to switch places when our arms got tired and keeping Buster and Helen awake through the long night by quizzing them.Dad squeezed my shoulder Well, darling, he said, maybe the angel was you And the story basically just takes off from there As a teenager, Lily rides her pony five hundred miles across Arizona to teach in a rural school She moves to Chicago to experience love and heartbreak, and she basically dominates the entire time The Chicago story is nuts, like every other story in this book I love it all, and while I was reading it, I just thought, I KNEW you assholes lived crazy lives Why isn t all of history THIS Because these are the people I care about people like Lily Casey Smith who take life head on and drain every drop out of it I love that I want to hear about all of it.I think a couple of things are going on here, though, with the fact that this book wasn t as much of a hit as The Glass Castle I think The Glass Castle actually, counter intuitively, benefitted from its off putting child molestation cover It hit the Oprah audience square on with that cover, but then it was actually brilliant, so to the extent the anti Oprah crowd could be convinced to try it, it was gritty enough for them.We all came to Half Broke Horses, though, with that history and expectation Like, we wanted to have that, OMG SO MUCH BETTER THAN I EXPECTED experience with this book, too But, since we expected brilliance, it was kind of an impossible standard So, I really, really loved this book I think it was at least as good as The Glass Castle, and it presents this incredible American history that I have never known or imagined Where The Glass Castle was me and my childhood and my life, this was the alien landscape of our past of the weirdness, bravery, and cruelty of American genealogy But, if I had expected that surprise of something genius wrapped in an off putting cover, and if I had counted on that, I think I would have been a little disappointed, like a lot of people were I was the opposite of disappointed This book was spectacular.I know a lot of people treat their own personal histories as though they are a social faux pas We hesitate to say what makes us who we are and pretend that we magically dropped into our successes and failures, that we were never victims, that we were always proper and never broken And, while I would never encourage self indulgence, there is nothingbeautiful to me than personal histories These stories of floods, horseback rides, men with backup families, backbreaking work, and fierce family loyalty are that magic to me Those are the magic that dropped us here, and I want to know and understand it all

    Story of the author s grandmother, Lily Casey, and her life of teaching and ranching in the desert near the Grand Canyon in Arizona in the early 1900s At first, I thought this book was non fiction, and it is based on a real person and her actual experiences, but Walls describes it as a novel, stating in the Author s Note, since I don t have the words from Lily herself, and since I have also drawn on my imagination to fill in details that are hazy or missing the only honest thing to do is call Story of the author s grandmother, Lily Casey, and her life of teaching and ranching in the desert near the Grand Canyon in Arizona in the early 1900s At first, I thought this book was non fiction, and it is based on a real person and her actual experiences, but Walls describes it as a novel, stating in the Author s Note, since I don t have the words from Lily herself, and since I have also drawn on my imagination to fill in details that are hazy or missing the only honest thing to do is call the book a novel It is written in first person as if her grandmother is telling her life story Lily Casey is a colorful character who led an eventful life The book is filled with family anecdotes of her adventures such as Surviving multiple 500 mile journeys alone by horse across the desert at age 15 Learning to fly an airplane at a time when air travel was fairly new Teaching in a one room schoolhouse in several small towns Selling moonshine out of the back door of her house to make extra cash during Prohibition Turning a hearse into a school bus Figuring out how to capture water in the desert for the cattle ranch she and her husband managed I found this book entertaining and enjoyed getting to know Lily Casey It provides a good idea of what life was like back in those times, with lots of mentions of how people lived no indoor plumbing, listening to the radio, the hard work in getting almost anything accomplished I think the author does a great job of capturing the voice of her grandmother and could almost hear her speaking in her no nonsense manner I have not yet read The Glass Castle, but this book provides a good foundation of how Walls mother was influenced by her grandmother and their early life on the ranch, so I look forward to reading it
