about

American lore has slighted the cowgirl, although at least one can still be found in nearly every ranching community. Like her male counterpart, she rides and ropes, understands land and stock, and confronts the elements. The writer and photographer Teresa Jordan traveled sixty thousand miles in the American West, talking with more than a hundred authentic cowgirls running ranches and performing in rodeos. The result is a fascinating book that also situates the cowgirl in history and literature. A new preface and updated bibliography have been added to this Bison Book edition.
Teresa Jordan is an editor of two anthologies of western women's writing. She has been a regular contributor to The Savvy Traveler and other public radio shows, introducing a large audience to the land, culture and folklife of the American West.

"An absorbing portrait of the highly independent, often colorful women who have long stood next to the men of the American West."—Publishers Weekly
