Book Description

Cowgil Trail is part of a six-book series about four generations
of the Morgan family living, fighting, and thriving amidst a turbulent Texas history
spanning from 1845 to 1896.  Although a series, each book book can be read
on its own.

In 1884 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 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. The cattle begin to scatter. Will they lose everything? Where will their
help come from?



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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful book about courage May 25, 2012
Format:Paperback
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Escapist Reading at its Finest October 16, 2012
Format:Paperback
Young Maggie Porter returns to the Rocking P Ranch to discover her father's health failing and the cowboys ready to walk off the job just at cattle-drive time. Even Alex Bright, the head ranch hand Maggie secretly loves, can't or won't convince the workers to stay on. In desperation, Maggie assembles a team of cowgirls from the town's women to help her drive her father's cattle to market. At stake is the ranch itself, for the bank waits to foreclose. But can cowgirls really do a cowboy's job, and will the striking ranch hands let them?

Davis's skilled writing carries the reader into romance and adventure in the Wild West. This is escapist reading at its finest. Distinctive characters, descriptions that leave the taste of trail dust in your mouth, and a comfortable-but-not slaggard pace make Cowgirl Trail fun to read.

I recommend Cowgirl Trail by Susan Page Davis to adult readers who enjoy western historical romance. This is one of six novels written by Susan Page Davis, Vickie McDonough, and Darlene Franklin, which can be read alone or as part of the Texas Trails series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Story Line October 8, 2012
Format:Paperback
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.

Find out more on the book over here.
