Mister Ron's Basement #1312
We are celebrating WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH with fun stories by 19th Century Women Authors.
This week, we are spotlighting the writing of Kate M. Cleary. Cleary was a truly professional writer, who helped support her family with a prodigious output of short stories, poems and novels. Many of them centered on pioneer life in Nebraska, which she experienced first-hand for many years. Her work was a major influence on Willa Cather's writing.
Today we offer a short, romantic story from 1904 about a lucky horshoe and a broken mirror, entitled 'Bert's Good Luck.'
Time: approx eleven and a half minutes
