She never moved more than 300 miles from there in her 102 years.This is the story of her life, told by her biographer, her daughter, Vera Blaylock McHalek, and edited by her granddaughter, Nan McHalek Creel.It is the story of Hatties life in the hardscrabble conditions of a series of small ranches in rural Central Texas, growing up on a struggling ranch, marrying a government wolf trapper, raising 9 children, and surviving. But it is also the story of a kind and gentle woman with a harsh exterior who raised her children and her grandchildren and taught them the important things in life - love, kindness, independence and morality.Through the eyes of her daughter, Vera, you will see a woman who overcame and thrived in the hard times of the late 19th and 20th centuries - the joys, grief, risks, losses and accomplishments of a singular woman who exemplified the core of the underlying strength of Texas and our United States.It is the small day-to-day deeds of the simplest of us that make up the best of our society.

You will meet one of those people in the this evocative and heart-warming story of the life of Hattie.
