The Queen of the Cowgirls, Dale Evans wrote the foreword for this colorful look at cowgirls from the 1890’s to 1950’s. The book contains over 400 color photos of cowgirls, historic images, advertising art and artifacts.The authors, Flood and Manns documents the exciting life of girls growing up western on the frontier. Ranch life for young girls roping and riding alongside their cowboy brothers and fathers is detailed. They cover the development of specialized horse equipment and riding outfits adapted for these daughters of the prairie. Chapters cover their contributions to wild west shows and early rodeos. As with the wild and woolly cowboys they rode with, these colorful Cowgirls they became flamboyant characters and celebrities. The cowgirl became a mythical figure as she was portrayed in early Hollywood movies. Another section of the book depicts the cowgirl as an American icon. She is shown in advertising, calendar art and portrayed as the girl of the golden west and rodeo stars. The book wraps up with a look at cowgirls on dude ranches and western romance. The best book ever on the subject of Cowgirls. Read More
