Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel - Jeannette Walls

In this true-life novel, Walls depicts the tale as told by her grandmother, Lily Casey Smith. From a young age, her grandmother began breaking horses with her father on his ranch. As a teenager, she left home to teach 500 miles away, traveling by horse. She continued on to learn how to drive a car and to fly a plane, and eventually became a mother of two. Walls' grandmother pushed the boundaries imposed upon women and disregarded prejudice of any kind, believing in the inclusion of all individuals regardless of race, gender, and more. Her grandmother's tale offers a great introduction to Walls' eventual memoir, The Glass Castle, depicting her childhood and experiences living as a vagabond with her parents.
