"The 1840s ushered in the beginning of the largest migration in U.S. history. People in crowded eastern cities & Missouri River towns were feeling the pull of the western frontier. It was the dawn of a new era of expansion, & over the next few decades, the making of a new kind of pioneer... It was the birth of the cowgirl!
Welcome to the world of nimble equestriennes, hawkeyed sharpshooters, sly outlaws, expert wranglers, & talented performers who made eyes pop & jaws drop with their skills, savvy, & bravery. In this fascinating account of an ever-evolving American icon, Holly George-Warren invites readers to saddle up with a host of these trailblazers who helped settle the West & define the cowgirl spirit."
