    1. A memoir of Margaret Craven, and her break into journalism and professional story writing at a time when it was a place few women had ventured. She also describes the events and circumstances in her life which led her to research and write the famous bestselling book "I Heard the Owl Call My Name".

    2. What a marvelous person is Margaret Craven! It was a joyful experience reading this book about her life & her writings. I read I HEARD THE OWL CALL MY NAME (second time) while I was reading this story, it was revealing.

    3. Long ago I read Margaret Craven's famous novel and, as a teenager, was enthralled. It's just now I wonder if the censorship or otherwise said simplistic style of her writing would make it into literature other than young adult. She's a good writer and her tact is most admirable.

    5. Simply told, “Again Calls The Owl” is the memoir of author Margaret Cravens (1901-1980) who had a career as a short story writer. She wrote her best selling novel “I Heard The Owl Call My Name” when she was 69. I read that book back in the ’70’s when it was popular and that is why I was drawn to this book. I found it interesting because I like hearing women’s stories, especially women who lived in a different era and had to deal with a man’s world. The book is only 120 pages and [...]

    6. A quick read of a memoir by the author of "I Heard the Owl Call My Name". An interesting story of a woman who decided to go her own path in the early part of the 20th Century by becoming a writer. Working mostly in newspapers and later writing short stories for magazines, Margaret Craven eventually penned the lovely, lyrical novel for which she is known. While more of a stream-of-consciousness style of writing, this book has its interesting points.

    7. I found this wonderfully engaging. There are no unnecessary words in Craven's autobiography and it reads as rich and deep as the night sky full of stars. Several places caused me to laugh and more than one place made me cry. I think if you feel a connection to her I Heard the Owl Call My Name, you will be quite happy to read this.

    8. What a gentle book and a nice inspiration to writers. Oh the pains of that first job at a news paper. Then just as the switch to a better life is about to take place she gets cataracts. However she makes it through the surgery and into her job at the Saturday evening post. I loved it what a fast, but great read for a day off.
