From the Publisher:

Cowgirl Smarts is for cowgirls and city slickers alike who want to rope more out of life. Cowgirls who lived in the 1800s and early 1900s are inspirational to all women because of their passion for life and their tenacity to live it on their own terms. They bucked the norms with all they had, and lived a fuller life for it. They were bodacious, clever and admired. You don’t have to ride horses to appreciate these cowgirls’ amazing stories, but if you do ride, you’ll love the horse metaphors the author uses. It’s a fast-paced trot down a remarkable path that you’ll want to emulate.

The author defines Cowgirl Smarts as the winning characteristics of amazing Wild West cowgirls and organizes these characteristics into the new Cowgirl Creed. The Cowgirl Creed is seventeen lessons for roping a kick-ass life. Each lesson is illustrated with a story about a cowgirl who exudes that characteristic. Each chapter ends with suggestions on how you can adopt the characteristic into your own life. It’s a sassy romp through the Wild West that has immediate correlations to your own life.

While the book will definitely motivate you to put more giddee-up in your stride, you’ll also love the fact that each cowgirl story has been carefully researched by the author—these are real women you’ll want as your heroes.

From the Author:

This book is based on my life-long love and admiration for cowgirls, particularly those who settled the West. I spent years identifying and researching the cowgirls in this book. The stories almost seem too amazing to believe, but I assure you that they are all true.

As a reader, I was always disappointed that most published western history focused on the bad girls of the West, this book focuses solely on successful cowgirls who held honor and ethics above all else. These are the women that lead the way for the modern Americana woman. These are the women who burned their sidesaddles in protest and swung their leg over a horse to ride astride—scandalous at the time. We all owe them our gratitude. I hope this book not only sheds light on these women's accomplishments, but also motivates you to be more like them. Read it to get some cowgirl smarts of your own, then let 'er buck!
