�So great is our egocentricity that the world takes on the contours of our own emotions. A few places still hum with the radioactive half-life of the experiences I have lived in them, city streets or landscapes vibrating with love, loss or revelation...� �E. McBride|
Elizabeth McBride's LAST OF THE NICE GIRLS: How a Nice Girl from the British Empire Ends Up a Witch in the New Mexico Desert is the life work of a remarkable woman dedicated to the quality of her journey, a posthumous memoir spanning 1933 to 2004. From Hong Kong to Scotland to New Mexico and all points between, McBride lived an international life as a writer, adventurer, political activist and spiritual seeker. Much more than an international travelogue or memoir, this is the story of a "bridge woman" - one who lived on the cusp of a time when women began to see themselves as having more options, and were yet still caught in the more traditional expectations.
Elizabeth McBride has important things to say to other women about living their lives as free women with choices.
