Summary
Eva Pendleton Henderson, a member of the Chisum family, recounts her life on the windy border country of southern New Mexico. Growing up in a time of legends - Pancho Villa afoot, the rumblings of the first automobile terrifying horses as well as men, drought and fate walking hand in hand, the end of the old West and the beginning of the new. An oft told tale? Yes, but rarely told by a girl and woman who truly saw what was there and wrote of it in a clear, stron, sensible voice. Her story shines as brightly as her unmistakable wit. For all ages; a book for all season -- Back cover
