Conway continues the story that began in her acclaimed memoir The Road from Coorain. True North starts with her arrival in the United States from Australia in 1960 and carries us through her acceptance in 1975 of the presidency of Smith College. It is a memoir of intellectual discovery, as Conway enters a lively community of women scholars and examines the personal narratives of her feminist precursors. It is the story of a love affair that ripened into a remarkable marriage. It is an unapologetic account of the author's struggles with sexual bias in her profession. Candid and elegant, True North is the story of an extraordinary woman living in an extraordinary time.
