Summary
  • "Caballos salvajes nos descubre los origenes de la disfuncional familia Walls. Si en El castillo de cristal los ninos nos conmovieron con su fortaleza y sus ganas de vivir, en esta precuela será Lily Casey Smith, su abuela, la que nos brinde su tenacidad y perseverancia ante las dificultades que atravesó en el camino de su vida. Heroina y pionera en el Lejano Oeste americano, Lily vivió durante sus casi primeros diez años en una caseta del desierto de Texas. A pesar de la extrema pobreza en que subsistía con sus padres, no tardó en convertirse en una joven maestra de un pueblo situado a 28 días a caballo, lo que supondría el principio de una sucesión de desafíos en una tierra de promesas y a la vez de grandes adversidades. Tras casarse con un hombre bígamo, lo abandona para irse con otro hombre dueño de un rancho con el que tiene dos hijos, uno de ellos es Rose Mary Walls, la madre de El castillo de cristal, y durante todo este tiempo se convertirá en jinete de rodeo, en domadora de caballos, en una despiadada jugadora de póquer y hará lo imposible porque ella y su familia sobrevivan, con su afán de superación y su encendida defensa de la libertad de la mujer a principios del siglo xx."-- amazon.com
  • "For the first 10 years of her life, Lily Casey Smith, the narrator of this true-life novel by her granddaughter, Walls, lived in a dirt dugout in west Texas. Walls, whose mega selling memoir, The Glass Castle, recalled her own upbringing, writes in what she recalls as Lily's plainspoken voice, whose recital provides plenty of drama and suspense as she ricochets from one challenge to another. Having been educated in fits and starts because of her parents' penury, Lily becomes a teacher at age 15 in a remote frontier town she reaches after a solo 28-day ride. Marriage to a bigamist almost saps her spirit, but later she weds a rancher with whom she shares two children and a strain of plucky resilience. (They sell bootleg liquor during Prohibition, hiding the bottles under a baby's crib.) Lily is a spirited heroine, fiercely outspoken against hypocrisy and prejudice, a rodeo rider and fearless breaker of horses, and a ruthless poker player. Assailed by flash floods, tornados and droughts, Lily never gets far from hardscrabble drudgery in several states New Mexico, Arizona, Illinois but hers is one of those heartwarming stories about indomitable women that will always find an audience."-- amazon.com
