Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"Walls does her grandmother proud in this historically revealing and triumphant novel of a fearless, progressive woman who will not be corralled....Fact, fiction, either way, every tall-tale episode in Lily's rough-and-tumble life is hugely entertaining and provocative, while Walls prose is as crystal clear and reviving as the water Lily cherishes in the high desert." (starred review)

Donna Seaman, Booklist, 09/01/2009

Review:

"[I]n an elegant act of literary transubstantiation, Walls gives first person voice to a kinswoman born too soon to participate in today's memoir boom. She also provides further insight into how she herself got to be the tough, tender, fearless writer she is."

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, 10/09/2009

Book Description: SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2009. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged. 152 x 130 mm. Brand New. Jeannette Walls s memoir The Glass Castle was nothing short of spectacular ( Entertainment Weekly ). Now, in Half Broke Horses, she brings us the story of her grandmother, told in a first-person voice that is authentic, irresistible, and triumphant. Those old cows knew trouble was coming before we did. So begins the story of Lily Casey Smith, Jeannette Walls s no nonsense, resourceful, and spectacularly compelling grandmother. By age six, Lily was helping her father break horses. At fifteen, she left home to teach in a frontier town -- riding five hundred miles on her pony, alone, to get to her job. She learned to drive a car ( I loved cars even more than I loved horses. They didn t need to be fed if they weren t working, and they didn t leave big piles of manure all over the place ) and fly a plane. And, with her husband Jim, she ran 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. 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, and anyone else who didn t fit the mold. Rosemary Smith Walls always told Jeannette that she was like her grandmother, and in this true-life novel, Jeannette Walls channels that kindred spirit. Half Broke Horses is Laura Ingalls Wilder for adults, as riveting and dramatic as Isak Dinesen s Out of Africa or Beryl Markham s West with the Night. Destined to become a classic, it will transfix audiences everywhere. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780743597227
