Yee-haw! Fresh air, open prairie, and a galloping horse-what more could a girl want? Beginning in the mid-nineteenth century, families headed west to build ranches and start new lives in the cattle business. Their daughters were raised on the range with an independent spirit and horses in their blood. Now modern-day cowgirls can come face-to-face with the revolutionary cowgirl style of yesteryear through first-person recollections and over 40 detail-rich, engaging photographs. The book is aimed at girls who love horses and who are hungry for heroines.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

The disconnect between illustration and text continues to the very end with a quote from 88-year-old Fannie, paired with a photo of three other female “friends and competitors.” Given the dearth of good material on this subject, readers will be very disappointed in this less than inspired ride.
