This moving novel of pioneer life in Arizona is destined to become a classic. Based on the life of the authors mother, it overturns every stereotype of western womanhood. <P>Comes closer to the truth and the validity of the so-called winning of the West than anything I have ever read. It is terrifying, heartbreaking and remarkable. . . . Filaree is also one of the most magnificent portraits of a woman that exists in our literature.--Howard Fast <P>I loved Filaree, I didnt just read it, I crawled between the pages and lived it.--Lily Tomlin <P>An extraordinary performance. . . . a powerful antidote to the romantic illusions some people have about ranch people and life on the range. . . . As a writer, Mrs. Noble makes no compromises. She tells her story in plain country American dialect, offers no exaggerated sex or violence, no vulgar talk. She is a realist in the best sense, a breath of fresh air in these free-wheeling times.--C. L. Sonnichsen
