Crazy Woman Creek: Women Rewrite the American West

'“Some groups will sound familiar in all parts of the country, like the ‘casserole women’ in a nameless subdivision taking food to the family of a SIDS victim or the ‘Tupperware ladies’ who make their signature hot dish in response to every birth, death, anniversary, and broken leg. Others seem unique to the West, like the four animal-loving friends from isolated ranches who gather for the births of horses and puppies, ending with a champagne toast, or the woman who conducts tortilla-making lessons for her daughter, then later her grandchildren. Church ladies, sewing and quilting circles, library ‘read-alouds,’ yoga and meditation groups, Uno-playing chemotherapy patients—all have contributed to this thoughtful, restorative collection.” —Booklist    '
