Edited by Otto Kallir, Grandma Moses' benefactor and promoter. Compiled from her own notes, and dictations given to Hildegard Bachert, Grandma Moses authored, reviewed and approved this autobiography prior to publication.

I picked up this book as part of my research into what distinguishes "contentedly successful" people from "unsuccessful" or "greedily successful" ones.

I'm glad I did.

Without ruining her story for you I will say I thoroughly enjoyed hearing how this woman combined a natural talent, passion and a simple understanding of business necessity and opportunity into a life well-lived. It's well-written and provides clear insight into the kind of thinking that made the United States the place of opportunity it is today.

Someone told me, and I believe it's safe to estimate that Grandma Moses made at least a hundred times more money between the ages of 86 and 101 than she and her husband made together during her first 86 years.

Her stoic and down-to-earth approach to faith and life are remarkable.

Hardcopy may be hard to find, but it's worth a little looking. If you catch yourself saying, I'm too old to change or I'm too old to do more with my life - you owe it to yourself to get and read this book, because you're wrong!

Age doesn't keep you from pursuing your life's dreams - only your choice can do that.

What is there to say about a book about Grandma Moses. It didn't have a dust jacket, but was a nice book, none the less. I took one star off because of the lack of a jacket.
