Hill Country: A Novel by Janice Woods Windle

When Laura Hoge Woods died in 1966, at the age of ninety-six, she left her granddaughter a cardboard box labeled For my Janice when Im gone. In the box were her thin gold wedding ring, her old blue Olivetti portable typewriter, and all of her fading notes for the Hill Country manuscript. <P> Using her grandmothers exquisite notes, Windle creates a remarkable portrait of 100 years of life in Central Texas, home of the Texas bluebonnet, swamp rabbits, Yellow Dog Democrats, and terrifying renegade Apaches and Comanches. At the heart of Hill Country are two courageous, impassioned, and ambitious women: Laura and her close friend, Rebekah Baines Johnson, mother of President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Capturing the passions of a womans heart and the universal struggle of women seeking to make a difference in a mans world, Windle transforms historical fact-including little known stories about the Johnson family -- into page-turning fiction.
