Here, Sandra Day O'Connor, the first female justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, with her brother, Alan, tells the story of the Day family & of growing up on the harsh yet beautiful land of the Lazy B Ranch in Arizona. Laced throughout these stories about three generations of the Day family, & everyday life on the Lazy B, are the lessons Sandra & Alan learned about the world, about people, self-reliance, & survival. Their grandfather first put cattle on open grazing land in 1880, & the Lazy B developed & prospered as their parents, who lived on the Lazy B all their lives, carved out a frugal & happy life for themselves & their 3 children. ''An enduring portrait of an independent young woman on the brink of becoming one of the most prominent figures in America today.'' Photos.
