This stunningly photographed, well researched and highly entertaining chronicle of the history and legend of the great American (and Canadian) Cowgirl sparkles at every level. Divided into three sections, “Real Cowboy Girls”, “Living Legends” and Rhinestone Cowgirls”, this is a fascinating, well-written, beautifully packaged book that will compliment any Western collection and add immeasurably to the reader’s knowledge of Western lore.
Extensively footnoted, flawlessly referenced, with rare ranch, rodeo and silver screen photographs, this is a first class production from cover to cover. Author Candace Savage writes in a a scholarly and highly entertaining manner, highlighting the women of the true Old West, rodeo riders, trick shot champions, as well as stars of the stage, screen and television. Ms. Savage has set the standard for this portion of Western literature. Probably no other volume may equal this fine effort.
Highly recommended as great reading, with crystal clear, rare photographs and remarkable graphics, this book is a keeper.
