BeschreibungQuincie, the motherless thirteen-year-old daughter of an itinerant muleskinner, is the captivating protagonist of this depression-era novel set in the Texas oil patch. Her story's value resides not only in the viewpoint of a young girl who comes of age in the shadow of the derricks but also in the currency of her sensitivity to the natural world and environmental issues.Originally a 1941 Houghton-Mifflin Literary Fellowship Book, Quincie Bolliver is an extraordinary study in character, place, and the community of women weak and strong. It is not only a remarkable first novel, but also one that should stand for all time.
