A Woman of the Century, Frances Minerva Nunnery (1898–1997)
summary
Cecil Dawkins has made Frances Nunnery's taped recollections into a lively story that sounds as though Nunnery were telling tales to an old friend at her kitchen table. Nunnery's story is of a woman who made her life in New Mexico--a determined, ingenious entrepreneur whose career and personality defy every stereotype about women.
