From the Back Cover:

When you think of a cowgirl, what comes to mind? Most likely a beautiful woman riding across the open range - riding like the wind - with a big smile on her face. Like cowboys, they're the stuff of myth and legend, but cowgirls are also real.
David R. Stoecklein started photographing cowgirls for his calendars fifteen years ago, always hoping that, one day, he'd be able to put together a book. And that day has arrived. In Cowgirls, you will meet some of the most genuine and confident cowgirls of today's American West - the real McCoy. He has chosen some of his best photos of some of his favorite cowgirls for this book, which is intended to be a celebration of the American Cowgirl - her beauty, her skill, and her love of horses and the West. The beautiful women in these photographs are working cowgirls, all of them ride and are devoted to their horses. In fact, they are all passionate about it.
Complementing Stoecklein's photography are wonderful articles that reflect the cowgirl spirit and lifestyle from Sue Wallis, Elizabeth Clair Flood, and the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. In addition, we asked all of the cowgirls that are featured in this book to give us their thoughts on what it means to be a cowgirl, what they enjoy most about their lifestyle, and what they love about cowboys. Their responses will leave you yearning to spend a day in their boots.
Stoecklein's Cowgirls is a tribute to the women of the West, a celebration of their spirit, and a testimonial to the boundless freedom in which they live their lives. So sit a spell, leaf through the pages, and take in the wonderful world of cowgirls.
