We Have a Little Sister: Marguerite, the Midwest Years
Maggie, subject of this memoir, is the late wife of Sanford. The youngest of six children, she was born in a small town in central Nebraska in the year 1905. Her father, part Cree Indian, was a mason by trade and a county marshal. He and his numerous family and friends furnished the recollections of time, place and event that enabled Sanford to capture episodes of Maggie's early life on the Great Plains before she moved to Hollywood to become an award-winning screenwriter. This portrayal of a life and values gone by makes this a book of valuable Americana that otherwise would have been lost.
