I love the comments made by the two who preceded me in messages.
Re: a copy--I am not sure if any more copies are available, anywhere.
Re: Alice Bonville--who was/is she? Who were her parents?
I am doing a re-read of Ouida's book and agree that its contents are priceless--
even more so everyday!
Re: Ouida--She spent her later years living in Speculator, NY, with her sister, Mary.
After Mary passed away, Ouida stayed on in Speculator and wrote her book there, in
1980.

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 !
