Brilliant book. A case study, beautifully and appropriately off-kilter in style, giving voice to how violent and traumatized societies affect the inhabitants of said society.

“Throughout the living world whenever the opportunity has arisen, the subjective experiences and cognitive choices of animals have aesthetically shaped the evolution of biodiversity. The history of beauty in nature is a vast and never-ending story.”

Book 3 in my Pre-road trip through Kentucky reading list! So many books, so little time.

Wonderfully rich and detailed with a heroine that will stay inside my heart and head, giving me counsel and courage, for a long time. a simply beautiful book.

Gertie nodded, puzzled by the woman‘s voice. The words told, but the voice, like the eyes, asked, even when she gave her name.

Made me nostalgic for my teenage reading habits: historical fiction, adventure: Ivanhoe, Kidnapped, James Fenimore Cooper. But, ended a little too rah rah-tame the wilderness, for my taste. Still, I learned a lot about how Kentucky was settled. Giles, a woman of the 1950s, portrayed prejudices honestly, if one-sidedly, with characters exhibiting both admirable and (as the book‘s wonderful vernacular would have it) misadmirable qualities.

“Lordy, but it was fair and pretty.”

Starting my pre-road-trip, get-in-the-mind-to-drive-36 hours book queue. Focusing on Kentucky as: I‘ve never been and it falls mid-way round the circle we‘ll make.
