Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Writing this book was a lot of fun, but also a great deal of hard work. I learned a lot about women on the cattle trails while doing my research. Captive Trail, my earlier book in this series, won the 2012 Will Rogers Medallion Award in the Western Fiction category. I hope you enjoy this story of faith, forgiveness, and adventure.

From the Back Cover

COWGIRL TRAIL bcc 1.16.12


A young woman determined to save the family ranch

A devastating loss

An answer to prayer as shots are fired


Maggie Porter returns to the Rocking P Ranch. The sanatorium was not able to save her mother and now her father's health is failing. When the cowboys walk off the job leaving no one to drive the cattle to market, head ranch hand, Alex Bright, cannot convince the men to stay. How could Alex let this happen?

Maggie is desperate to save the ranch. To everyone's surprise, she turns to the town's women for help. The cowgirls must herd, rope, and drive the cattle to market. With only two days left, outlaws charge the small band in an effort to start a stampede. The cattle begin to scatter. Will they lose everything? Where will their help come from?

Doubt meets hope, and fear gives way to faith in the Morgan family.

Maggie Porter has grown up on the Rocking P Ranch and has come to love everything there is to about ranching, from riding horses, roping and driving cattle. As a young girl at 13, she had developed a school girl crush for ranch-hand Alex Bright because he didn't treat her any different because she was the bosses daughter.

Now that she has returned to the Rocking P as an older women, she wonders if that same crush exists and she can't wait to see Alex again. When she arrives home on the ranch, she learns Alex has been promoted as foreman, but even though her heart continues to chase after Alex, she finds out that things on the ranch aren't running as smoothly as her father would like. Maggie returns home after a long stay from helping her ill mother at the sanatorium and later attending her funeral, she finds her father isn't his usual self. She believes he is taking her mother's grief harder than she expected and learns that he has relinquished most of the ranch's task to Alex instead of being there on hand to help.

Maggie learns from Alex that most of the men are considering striking against the Rocking P, since her father has taken back some of the benefits they used to have working for him, from herding their own cattle on the ranch, to basic help in maintaining the bunkhouses and they haven't had a pay raise in ten years. Things get worse when Leo, one of the ranch hands is injured and her father refuses to help. He tells Leo that his wife will have to take him to town to see a doctor because he can't spare any men. That leaves Leo's wife, Sela to have to manage with an infant and leave her three young boys in the care of Dolores, the housekeeper.

I wasn't really sure about this book when I saw the cover, I know it's really cliche to say this but NEVER judge a book by its cover! Then I started to read it and it grabbed my attention right away and I fell in love with Maggie Porter the main character. This was a page turned and I would stay up late at night reading and promise myself just one more page and before I knew it I had finished the entire book! What I didn't realize was that this book was part of a 6 book series, I'm thrilled about that and can NOT wait to read the rest of the series. Obviously you do not have to read them in order and they can stand alone by themselves. Susan Page Davis is a dynamic writer that captivates her readers and leaves them wanting more, I will definitely start reading more of her books in the near future. I give Cowgirl Trail 5 out of 5 stars for the spunkiness that she gave Maggie and the other ladies in this powerful book with a little bit of Texas history thrown in.

The unique concept of this tale is in the all-woman trail drive. I've read books where a woman or two might be along on the trip to Dodge or Abilene (or wherever) for one reason or another, but this is the first one I've read where all the drovers are female.

It's easy to sympathize with Maggie. She's had a rough couple of years and returns home to find the successful and well-respected ranch she left has fallen into somewhat of a shambles. Her father is nasty to his employees for seemingly no reason. The foreman, a man she's loved for years walks out on them in solidarity with the other cowboys in their strike. When she learns of her father's illness and neighboring ranchers can't loan her help, she's left with no choice but to round up her lady friends and take the cattle to the stockyards.

Alex is a sweet man who has no desire to turn against his employer and leave the woman he loves to join the men in their strike. But Porter's bad attitude and refusal to help those who've been loyal to him in the past cannot be tolerated. Still, when he discovers Maggie's plan, he won't let her go all the way to Ft. Worth without watching over her.

Trail drives were perilous trips for even the most experienced drover, but don't expect tear-jerking drama and nail-biting suspense in this one. Even if a number of the women involved grew up on cattle ranches, at times, they seemed more like a group of debutantes and greenhorns, which made it more difficult for me to believe in the success of their journey. However, this book wasn't so much about the trail drive as the relationships between the characters.

Cowgirl Trail certainly fits the bill when it comes to novels to enjoy. But it's neither deep in emotion nor complicated in plot. I recommend it for those times when you're looking for escapism, something to read when you want a few hours of cowboy fun and a little romance. And don't we all need that on occasion?

Cowgirl Trail by Susan Page Davis is a part of the Texas Trail series. I had never heard of this series or author before and was excited to see what she had to offer. I love the story line and idea behind this book!

Maggie Porter is coming home to her father's ranch where she grew up. She has been away in San Fransisco because of her mothers recent death. When she arrives at the ranch she figures out nothing is working out like it should with the ranch hands and her fathers health. Maggie's father is now broke and she tries to figure out how to save the ranch before the bank takes it all.

Here's a tidbit from the back of the book, " Maggie is desperate to save the ranch and she turns to the town's women for help. The new cowgirls must herd, rope, and drive the cattle to market. With only two days left, outlaws charge the small band of cowgirls in an effort to start a stampede."

I love that she is able to get all of the girls to drive the herd since all of the men are gone. This story also has a little romance but not as much as I expect out of these type of books.

I enjoyed this book but the only thing that would have made it better would have been humor. The author could have done so much with this story if some humorous scenes were added.

I will be finding the rest of this series to read! Also, you can read these books alone and not as a series and it will all still make sense.
