Editorial Reviews

Review

Match their male cowboy counterparts these feisty women certainly didroping calves; herding cattle; branding steer; trick riding in the rodeo; even living up to the famous lyrics of Annie Get Your Gun,Anything you can do, I can do better. Its no coincidence that this timeless musical classic is all the rage on Broadway again today, for as this new literary tribute shows, the contributions of Americas cowgirls are boundless and brilliant. From the sad end of the life of Ella Watson, to the splendor of the rodeo days with Cowgirls of the 101 Ranch Wild West Show, to the Hollywood Western sirens like Josie Sedwick and Barbara Stanwyck, COWGIRLS is a visual feast, detailing the sagas of the Wests finest female pioneers with many never-before published photographs.

The writing/photography team of Elizabeth Clair Flood and William Manns, who also brought Cowboys & the Trappings of the Old West to life, researched the history of these famous ladies for five years, many times drawing on the rare collectibles of Western aficionados across the country to illustrate the colorful history of these women.

In addition to show casing famous photographs of the daring ladies, Flood and Manns even highlight the magnificent clothing and gear that evolved as rapidly as the spirit of the cowgirls themselves, many times showing original items side by side with historical photographs. Divided into six chapters, COWGIRLS covers the migration of women out west and the necessity for them to work the land and cattle, to the glory days of rodeo and cowgirl images in Hollywood and works of art.

Floods writing is crisp and witty, and Manns photographs are dazzling. Their passion for all that is Western speaks to the adventurer in all of us throughout COWGIRLS, and to the female spirit. -- COWBOY AND INDIANS

What a wonderful book! The old pictures are beautifully reproduced. In fact, they so remind me of my Grandmother who loved Frontier Days in the 40s in my home town. She loved horses, cowboys & cowgirls. What a fun look into our colorful past and some wild women who lived on the edge!

Format: Hardcover
This beautiful & astonishing book is an astonishing look at America's horse latitudes & its women, the best out west. Even better than the women of Cody's Wild West and the 101 are rodeo riders like Tillie Baldwin, a Viking princess with the heart of a Viking warrior in boots & chaps. The photo of Baldwin's Roman Ride at the Stampede in 1913 is worth every dollar & dime of the books cost and justifies every hour of effort that Elizabeth Flood spent in bringing her Cowgirls to publication.

A coffee table book of pictures, but with a great deal of very informative text. This was as thrilling as a collection of wild west short stories, but it was all true, so woo hoo! You ride, gals!

I got this as a gift for my step-mother who is big into cowgirl dress up events. Apparently, she got quite a few ideas for period clothing.
