Of course, some parts still hold true, on the whole - no woman president yet, for example - but talk about self-fulfilling prophecies!
The only place where tradition already seems to be under attack is in the feisty reading of what is proper to a heroine. No swooning here! The frontier spirit has trumped the wimple (though only at the cost of casting Native Americans as the bad guys - sigh):
Anyway, the whole book is up at my Flickr site, for anyone who yearns for the easy certainties of a bygone age.
