I figured the cover of a book couldn't be so deceiving. Laura and Carrie seem to be having a grand time in the snow. The publisher obviously didn't want to give a sense of how hard the long winter of 1880-1881 really was.
I’m not sure whether to be depressed or comforted by the Oscar-winning 1972 Robert Redford film The Candidate. This depiction of a California race for a U.S. Senate seat suggests that when it comes to politics, very little changes.
