Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The author offers a novel based on the life of her grandmother, Lily Casey Smith, who learned to break horses in childhood, journeyed 500 miles on pony as a teen to become a teacher, and ran a vast ranch in Arizona with her husband while raising two children, including Rosemary Smith Walls, portrayed in the author's acclaimed The Glass Castle.

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
