About FOBM Resources...
Start your Betty MacDonald research here. If you've never read Betty's work, or if your copy is a bit dog-eared, here is a bibliography and some sources. The current project is the compilation of a complete bibliography of Betty's work. Next we'll be adding a formal reference list (a bibliography of commentaries and scholarly works). Your own research can be published in our magazine; write to the editor for details. Resource suggestions are appreciated - electronic media only, please.
