|"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
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, Elizabeth 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.
