Editorial Reviews

Houston Post
This dry, harsh, spiny but heart-pulling country [of West Texas] is as much a part of this book as is Jewel Babb's non-conformist life. It gets off the highways . . . It is a strange and strong book about a strange and strong life.
Cattleman
The authentic voice of Mrs. Babb comes through on all the pages. . . . The book is a pleasure to read, not only for its evidence of little understood healing but because it gives a wonderful picture of life lived close to the bone.
West Texas Historical Association Year Book
This is a classic statement of rugged individualism amidst the forces of nature, and it documents the growth of a strong but patient and wise woman. . . . a very important twentieth-century chronicle for Texas Studies.'
