Almost a Hundred Years
Herbert Hoover's niece writes about her life. Much history of Santa Cruz area. As you read this remarkable autobiography, you will learn that Hulda never felt constrained by much of anything. And everything she chose to do she did extremely well. Artist, naturalist, writer, farmer, politician, businesswoman, wife and mother are all titles she has worn, and when you travel along her incredible life you can feel the energy that bursts forth when she focuses on a new challenge. Hulda Hoover McLean is no run-of the-mill woman, and this is no run-of-the-mill memoir. Hulda is a savy, tough, perceptive, smart lady.
