“Despite her own major achievements – she becomes the first licensed female glider pilot in the United States – Anne Morrow Lindbergh is viewed merely as Charles Lindbergh’s wife. The fairy-tale life she once longed for will bring heartbreak and hardships, ultimately pushing her to reconcile her need for love and her desire for independence, and to embrace, at last, life’s infinite possibilities for change and happiness.” – Novelist

They Called Her Reckless Book CoverWhen the U.S. Marine Fifth Regiment’s Recoilless Rifle Platoon acquired a small Korean pony to haul ammunition up the steep hills to the front lines, what they got was a real-life hero, Reckless, the courageous and indomitable warhorse who stood with her buddies for two years during the Korean War, saving many lives, raising spirits and winning the love and respect of all who knew her. From the moment she heard about Reckless, Janet Barrett knew she would write They Called Her Reckless – A True Story of War, Love and One Extraordinary Horse. Her experiences as a horsewoman gave her a particular appreciation of the tight bond that developed between Reckless and her fellow Marines, from which the story springs. Come hear the author talk about the spirited horse that drew her to write this amazing tale. Books will be available for purchase and signing at the end of the event.
