Dolly, Her Story

By Jane Ruggles Pinel

“If an author wrote the early losses that Dolly overcame in a novel, one would say it was unbelievable! But Dolly is true and written to masterfully interweave Dolly’s words from tapes with rich description of a child’s life that reveals the sharp spirit of survival in the child’s first observations of rural life and death. The story is both unique and universal. All immigrant families can identify with the her immense losses and responsibilities – the card dealt. This book is not only heart-felt read, it is an American, a Canadian, and Irish, and a universal story of starting over, and over again. As a social studies teacher, I recommend this book for young adults, women, men, and American Studies!”
