January 13, 2015 -- Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls   Author of The Glass Castle, Walls turns to fiction to tell the story of her extraordinary grandmother, Lily Casey Smith.  Lily spent her early years living in a dirt dugout and learning to break horses.  By age 15, she traveled 500 miles alone on horseback to teach in a frontier town.  Lily was plain spoken but fiercely outspoken against hypocrisy and prejudice.  Assailed by floods, tornados and drought, she met each challenge and found time to marry, run a large ranch, birth two children, learn to drive a car and fly a plane.
