Tales from High Hallack by Andre Norton

This is a volume of short stories from the master, Andre Norton.  As a boy, I made the assumption that Andre was a guy.  In the early 1950's sexism was rampant.   She was one of those figures that helped me realize that women can do everything men can and (gasp) sometimes more.   This is a collection of her short stories put out by her estate. (RIP)

These stories touch upon much of my childhood reading that transported me to locales far from my steel town roots.   They  still do!  The stories abound with courage and hope. 

I am pleased that they are being re-released and hope that another generation can be inspired.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
