Let me tell you what Ive learned: Texas Wisewomen Speak (Louann Atkins Temple Women and Culture Series, Book Four) by PJ Pierce

Barbara Jordan spoke for many Texas women when she told a reporter, I get from the soil and spirit of Texas the feeling that I, as an individual, can accomplish whatever I want to, and that there are no limits, that you can just keep going, just keep soaring. I like that spirit. Indeed, the sense of limitless possibilities has inspired countless Texas womensometimes in the face of daunting obstaclesto build lives rich in work, family, friends, faith, and community involvement. In this collection of interviews conducted by PJ Pierce, twenty-five Texas women ranging in age from 53 to 93 share the wisdom theyve acquired through living unconventional lives. Responding to the question What have you found that really matters about life? they offer keen insights into motherhood, career challenges, being a minority, marriage and widowhood, anger, assertiveness, managing change, persevering, power, speaking out, fashioning success from failure, writing your own job description, loving a younger man, and recognizing opportunities disguised as disasterto name only a few of their topics. In her introduction, Pierce describes how she came to write the book and how she chose her subjects to represent a cross-section of career paths and ethnic groups and all geographic areas of Texas. A topical index makes it easy to compare several women views on a given subject.
