Summary
"Now, for the first time in the Modern Library, here is the classic memoir of Sandra Day O'Connor's family and early life, her journey to adulthood in the American Southwest that helped make her the woman she is today--the first female justice of the U.S. Supreme Court who became one of the most powerful women in America. In this beautiful and illuminating book, Sandra Day O'Connor and her brother, Alan, tell the story of the Day family, and of growing up on the harsh yet beautiful land of the Lazy B ranch in Arizona. Laced throughout these remarkable stories about three generations of the Day family, and everyday life on the Lazy B, are the lessons Sandra and Alan learned about the world, self-reliance, and survival, and how the land, people, and values of the Lazy B shaped them. This fascinating glimpse of life in the Southwest in the last century recounts an important time in American history, and provides an enduring portrait of an independent young woman on the brink of becoming one of the most prominent figures in America."
