The Rebellion of Miss Lucy Ann Lobdell (Large Print / Library Binding)
— Jackie is our #1 Book Blogger at Tattered Cover and her word is gold.
This book is based on the real Lucy Ann Lobdell and her letters and diaries. She always planned to write a book about herself, but she was too busy crashing through all sorts of expectations and social norms. She pretty much shook the world around her and did whatever she wanted, with mixed but very interesting results. There is still a mystique to Lucy Ann (and all the other names she had over her life) that makes this book wonderfully juicy." ~ Jackie
At a time when women did not commonly travel unescorted, carry a rifle, sit down in bars, or have romantic liaisons with other women, Lucy Lobdell boldly set forth to earn men's wages.
