“Over the past several decades, historians have acknowledged women’s contributions to the history of the west and to cattle drives across the United States. But what separates this book from other publications is that it offers specific names, faces, and stories of an assortment of women who took to the Texas cattle trails between 1868 and 1889.”—East Texas Historical Journal
“Readers will find it hard to resist becoming fascinated by the risks that these women took and the degree of market savvy they possessed.”—Western Historical Journal
