9780931271984: Just Beyond Harmony

During the 1960s Gaydell Collier, husband Roy and their four children moved into a cabin near the community of Harmony, Wyoming. The cabin provided for their basic needs, but lacked indoor plumbing and other modern amenities of the time. The family along with their quirky pets provide a humorous tone to this story of growth, self reliance, and the importance of community and family.

About the Author:

Author: Gaydell Collier lives on a ranch in the Black Hills near Sundance, Wyoming. She co-authored three books on horses and horsemanship for Doubleday and co-edited three collections of women's writing for Houghton-Mifflin, including Leaning Into the Wind. Her essays, articles and poetry have appeared in numerous anthologies and publications. In 2004, she won the Wyoming Governor's Arts Award for Literature. In Gaydell's own words...."I loved books from before I was born, and began writing (well, scribbling) as soon as I could hold a crayon. One thing led to another, and I progressed to pencil, typewriter, and computer, bought too many books, became a librarian, and added more of my own scribbles to the world. Reading, writing, ranching. Dogs and horses. The land. That's it in a nutshell."

Review:

Gaydell Collier has penned a graceful story of dreams and family adjustment, of challenge and community and, most of all, a story of landscapes and how they shape us into beings we might never have imagined. --Jane Kirkpatrick award-winning author of A Flickering Light and Homestead

Gaydell Collier s delightful sense of humor never undermines her frankness and honesty, and she reminds us that isolation, wind, cold, and difficulties are the other side of the West s natural beauty, opportunity, open space, and freedom. Just Beyond Harmony belongs on a shelf alongside books like Elinore Pruitt Stewart s Letters of a Woman Homesteader, Hughie Call s Golden Fleece, and Ivan Doig s Heart Earth. --Robert Roripaugh former Wyoming Poet Laureate; Wrangler Award, Honor Thy Father
