In Episode 6 of Season 3, Jec interviews Molly Gloss, an author from Oregon. She has been decorated with numerous awards. She wrote The Hearts of Horses, a novel based around 1917 in Oregon. Martha, the main character, is a colt starter in rural Oregon while many cowboys were in Europe, fighting in World War I. I was keen to hear about her research for this project.

I LOVE ” The Hearts of Horses”, one of my favorite books!! The way the characters are written, the animals, the interactions and descriptions of everyday life. I just loaned it to my friend the other day! I first read it quite awhile ago, misplaced it during my move from CA to OR and then found another copy in a thrift store : ) Thanx for a great interview!!
