A House of Many Rooms, Hunter, Rodello
1 Hunter, Rodello A House of Many Rooms
This is a family chronicle of the Woodrows who lived a semi-rural village life around the turn of the century. The Woodrows, a Mormon family, were a lusty bunch, had a host of children, some "owned" and some "borrowed" when nieces, nephews, and grandchildren were taken into the brood. Papa rules the roost with a firm hand, and Kate - Mama - is simply a great woman. The Woodrows are people who have fire, character, charm, and for whom both duty and rebelliousness are virtues. They are a family full of grace. Papa didn't practice polygamy, but Grandfather did. He had two loved and loving wives and numerous children whom he cherished. Uncle Jo Campbell practiced it even more; he had six wives and 37 children - before the Manifesto abolished polygamy. A wonderful biography in turn humorous and occasionally sad. 240 pages, fine cover with embossed design on the front. Jacket has some wear at the spine ends and light edge wear. Book shop stamp on the back inside board. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

2 Jordan, Teresa Riding the White Horse Home : a Western Family Album
0679412190 / 9780679412199; This is Teresa Jordan's story of four generations of her family's devotion to the land, a devotion that required both physical courage and psychic endurance. She celebrates the strength and character of the women of her family, the men, the hay crew, cooks, and cowboys. With reverence and grace, she uses the history of her family to mirror the demise of a quintessential American way of life. This is not only Jordan's family history, it is every Western family's story: It is the story of the American West. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
