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

As she did in her memoir, The Glass Castle, Jeannette Walls spins family dysfunction into a riveting, triumphant tale. Walls writes Half Broke Horses (Scribner, $26), a “true-life novel,” in the voice of her spirited, defiant grandmother, Lily Casey Smith. Lily grew up in the Depression’s grueling rural poverty, moving from a Texas dugout to a failing New Mexico ranch. She was forced to leave school when her father spent her tuition money on a pack of great Danes, but she still became a pilot, rancher, and teacher. Think Little House on the Prairie, with a bit more grit and a lot more sass.
