Granny D: You're Never Too Old to Raise a Little Hellby Doris Haddock
Synopses & Reviews
In February 2000, ninety-year-old Doris “Granny D” Haddock became a national heroine when she completed her 3,200-mile, fourteen-month walk from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C., to bring attention to the issue of campaign finance reform.
Granny D recalls and celebrates an exuberant life of love, ac-tivism, and adventure—from one-woman feminist plays in the thirties, to stopping nuclear testing near an Eskimo fishing village in 1963, to her current crusade. Threaded throughout is the spirit of her beloved hometown in New Hampshire—Thornton Wilders inspiration for Grovers Corners in Our Town—a quintessentially American center of New England pluck, Yankee ingenuity, and can-do attitude.
Told in Doriss vivid and unforgettable voice, Granny D will move and delight readers with its clarion message that one person can indeed make a difference.
In February 2000, 90-year-old Doris "Granny D" Haddock completed her 3,200-mile, 14-month walk from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. Now in paperback and with a new final chapter, her personal diary tracks the progress of her walk as she recalls events in her life and the insights they have given her.
