Although most of Lapsley's sources are published and well known--including Mead's autobiography Blackberry Winter (1972), several biographies of both Mead and Benedict, and historical studies of the first half of the 20th century--the book is not merely a remixing of familiar ingredients.
In Blackberry Winter, Mead obscured the significance of her relationship with Benedict but wrote, "When she died, I had read everything she had ever written, and she had read everything I had ever written.
She also wrote a biography of her teacher and collaborator, Ruth Benedict (1974), and an autobiography, Blackberry Winter (1972).
