From back of book: "Most people who write comic dialogue for minors demonstrate surprisingly little feel for - or faith in- the original source material, that is, childhood, in all its unfettered and winsome glory. It is in this respect that Bill Watterson has proved as unusual as his feckless creations, Calvin and Hobbes. Watterson is the reporter who's gotten it right, childhood as it actually is."
Carolyn Lockhart (1871-1962) lived a life as colorful and as successful as her best-selling western adventure novels or her widely quoted newspaper columns. She attracted national attention as the owner-editor of the Cody Enterprise. H.L. Mencken praised her outspokenness as an investigative report and as a critic of the Prohibition. From her Kansas childhood to her early success as a reporter in Boston and Philadelphia, to the excitement of "making it big" as a writer-journalist, civic leader and rancher based mainly in Cody,WY, this is a portrait of a woman who broke conventions and made her own mark in a frontier setting.
This combines two adventures of Norton, the cat, whose feline charms and unique relationship with the author delighted cat lovers - and even cat haters - everywhere as he traipsed around the globe.

A delightful story that everyone should enjoy.
