Linda Hasselstrom published Maura's essay "How Do I Thank 45,382 people?" in the compilation in Crazy Woman Creek: Women Rewrite the American West (Houghton Mifflin Company, 2004).

Maura ponders how to thank many people who gave blood so that two daughters were able to be born and live. You can read the essay from Crazy Woman Creek on Google Books. (You may need to scroll down a page.)
