Violet  | 3 comments I’m looking for a book/books set in the Wild West with a female protagonist. Not romance, and not a “pioneer wife” type of book either. I’m looking for more of the classic western with adventure and drama and gunslinging but a female lead. Preferably one that’s well written too, a strong woman, but not the cliche badass, sassy, sexy strong woman trope.

Did you see the movie?

Rosa (rosaiglarsh) | 5231 comments The 2010 version, yes. I didn’t love it, but Mattie Ross was definitely a strong-willed female protagonist (though at times aggravating), and there definitely wasn’t a forced romance. I want to see the original movie, and now I want to read the book, too.
