From Jo Monaghan, the Southern-belle-debutant turned Idaho cattlewoman, to Fanny Sperry Steele, the Bucking Horse Champion of the World, the Wild West was populated with untamed women who worked and played as men did in the saddles of their favorite bucking broncos. This book brings together their stories, including their own thoughts about being cowgirls, and archival art that celebrates the Western experience.

Erin Turner - A simple girl from Colorado, it was the City That Never Sleeps that unlocked Erin's inner sanctity when she first unlaced her sneakers to hit her yoga mat. A writer by trade and an exercise enthusiast by way of sanity, Erin quickly realized after moving to New York City that getting anywhere fast meant truly slowing down which she finally learned how to do once her yoga practice began. From her first minutes on camera as a television reporter to her current, award-winning role as a Senior Producer and on-air talent in New York City, Erin's high-intensity career lead her to the mat in search of an awakening that mentally and physically stimulated her on a deeper level than what her years as a runner failed to provide. A Journalism graduate from the University of Colorado at Boulder, Erin found herself in every section of the country in pursuit of her career before following her heart and the man that captured it to New York City. It was here where Erin s first yoga class uncovered a new world of tranquility among the chaotic city and she's been addicted to the mind/body benefits of yoga ever since. Living in a city with limitless options, she explores every style, level and philosophy she can find and regardless of preference, she walks away from each and every class with a deeper sense of self and a greater appreciation for what the city unlocked in her spirit and her practice. Erin is grateful for discovering her true roadmap that has allowed her to combine her two passions in life, yoga and writing, and hopes to use both to unlock the same fire in others. Erin currently lives in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
