"With ample dynamic photos and lively quotes throughout, George-Warren presents a thoroughly absorbing overview of the history of cowgirls up to the present."&nbsp - School Library Journal

The 1840s ushered in&nbspa great wave of migration to the American West. This new era also marked the beginning 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, and talented performers who made eyes pop and jaws drop with their skills, savvy, and bravery.
&nbsp &nbsp &nbspIn this fascinating account of an American icon, readers are invited to saddle up with the women&nbspwho helped settle the West and define the cowgirl spirit.

Editorial Reviews

There are plenty of books about cowboys. Now it's the ladies' turn. . . . This offers a refreshing slant on the West and its women. Best of all are the many, many wonderfully reproduced photographs, posters, and even paper dolls that chronicle the history in this handsomely designed book." - Booklist "With ample dynamic photos and lively quotes throughout, George-Warren presents a thoroughly absorbing overview of the history of cowgirls up to the present." - School Library Journal "Thoroughly researched and filled with interesting facts, photographs and full-color art, the book shines in its ability to highlight a neglected story in American history. . . . George-Warren tells their stories in colorful, fascinating detail. This book would make an excellent addition to a unit on the American West or a celebration of Women's History Month." - VOYA "For horse-loving girls, this unique title meets a need they may not have known they had and might spur them on to cowgirl careers of their own." - Horn Book "
