I have the book she signed and my brother us looking for a copy
This Book is a wonder and should be made into a Movie ! It is a narrative of a life born in the Adirondack Mountains of New York ( 1930's ) . Ouida Girard was one of many children ( I think 9 ) . She became a teacher and Then left that world behind & began a Life long adventure Traveling the Whole World ! The Story is fantastic and captures a personal and intelligent view of what was happening at that time in the World !
She was my Grandmother's 1st Cousin . Alice Bonville . Before Ouida died , She sent me 2 copies of her book . In one of them was a note to me . She said that my Grandma Alice told her that I make perfect pies ! And I Do !
