Riassunto: Ever caught crawdads in the creek, played in a corncrib, or put on a circus for the whole town? Most people today no longer enjoy such old-fashioned pleasures, but that doesn’t mean they can’t experience them vicariously.
Harriett Dublin, rancher and storyteller, relates tales of her Depression-era childhood in her book The Cottonseed Kid: Childhood Memories of a Texas Life. A natural entertainer, Harriett’s stories are as engaging as they are enlightening, bringing to life a bygone era of ice cream sodas, chamber pots, and family farming. Harriett’s innate good sense mingles with faith in God, love for family, and a healthy dose of humor to make for a darn good read.
About the Author: Harriett Dublin’s remarkable adventures began as a Depression-era youngster on a ranch in the Texas Panhandle, the subject of her book The Cottonseed Kid: Childhood Memories of a Texas Life. Harriett asserted her independence at age eight when she added an extra T to the end of her name. Later, her feisty spirit prompted her to become an agricultural boss, running ranches in Texas, New Mexico, and Australia. Driven by her typical zeal and unwillingness to be categorized, Harriett has also designed and marketed her own clothing line, served as CEO of a major Texas property management corporation, and brought up five children. Today, in between frequent international adventures, she hangs her cowboy hat in Midland, Texas, where, in addition to raising quality cattle and horses, she indulges her passion for writing, painting, and cooking gourmet meals. She is also the author of Friday’s Child Cookbook.
