The Wild West and the rodeo are not the only places where the cowgirl spirit can be found. From the sharpshooting Annie Oakley to the legendary Calamity Jane, these female cowgirls came from all walks of life, but share an irrepressible spirit and dedication to pushing the boundaries. Featured cowgirls include Georgie Sicking (cowboy poet), Charley Parkhurst (stagecoach driver), Tillie Baldwin (rodeo cowgirl), Tad Lucas (rodeo’s First Lady), Lucille Mulhall (steer roper), Charmayne James (barrel racer), Lillian Riggs (rancher), Sally Skull (horse trader), Johanna July (horse tamer), and Mary Fields (pioneer and mail driver).

"With a sassy, scrapbooklike multimedia approach that uses both period photographs and portraits by Caldecott winner Sweet, the book chronicles infamous characters like Annie Oakley and Calamity Jane, along with some lesser-known women such as Lucille Mulhall, an expert hog-tier and horsewoman…These women, who were happy to "cowboy up" and marshal all of their fortitude to trust their instincts and accomplish great things in spite of criticism, are not just extraordinary galsthey are extraordinary people and realistic role models."
