Teaser ~ Half Broke Horses

Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls is "a true life novel" about the life of the author's grandmother, Lily Casey Smith.  Lily was sent home halfway through the school year, and her father met her when she arrived on the stagecoach.
"So you took my tuition money and bought dogs?"

"Watch that tone," Dad said. ...

"Did you take Buster out of school, too?"

"No.  He's a boy and needs that diploma if he's going to get anywhere."  Dad pushed the dogs over and found a spot for my suitcase.  "And anyway," he said, "we need you on the ranch."
