Loretta was often in trouble at school for fighting and in the community for drinking alcohol and other delinquent behaviors. Her schooling ended in the eighth grade, and she was pregnant before her fourteenth birthday. Loretta married the babys father and for many years scraped a living washing and cleaning other peoples clothes, picking strawberries and other menial tasks. Then, Loretta Lynns beautiful voice was discovered, and she rose above her difficult childhood to become one of Americas greatest country music stars. With a list of review questions and a glossary of terms, this brief publication is ideal for middle school readers and at-risk youth.
