I found this book to be very informative concerning women who not only helped shape the Wild West but were also instrumental in helping woman all over America throw off the old-fashioned stereotypes and start becoming citizens of this nation.

Since grew up with horses I have always been fascinated with riding and have attended a few rodeos in my day but were never aware of all the women who rode and their contribution to the rodeo and cowgirl world. From Sally Skull who was the first woman to own a ranch to the notorious Belle Starr to Enid Justin who created a booming boot business, this is a wonderful overview of all the fabulous women who made being a cowgirl a thing to look up to and admire.
