By: Linda F. Robertson
About the Book

About the Author
Born in Powell, Wyoming, Linda F. Robertson’s memoir weaves together the story of Wyoming’s ranch life provided by parents Dot and Lee Brunk and the global challenges as a public-school administrator and university director in Ohio. Husband Darrell Robertson’s military and civilian careers provided opportunities to explore the world. He also served as her partner in the study of effective leadership. Daughter Michelle Settecase’s work with EY’s Women Fast Forward initiative worldwide provided motivation for Robertson to examine her own career path reflectively.
However, enjoying life’s great adventure and sharing it with others is central to Dr. Robertson’s real passion. She framed this note card shared by her sister, Nancy Lewis (Nancy had received it from friends in New Zealand). Voltaire’s quote and this photo from that card says it all.
