About this title


In the old West, around the turn of the century, a few ranchers’ daughters—a brazen few—decided to shake up the establishment a little bit. They put on shocking divided skirts they had stitched up themselves or pants they had borrowed from fathers or brothers. They abandoned their ridiculous sidesaddles and dared to get on their horses astride. Then they happily rode off, leaving their lady-like images in the dust. They shot coyotes in Montana, rode the range in Wyoming, homesteaded in Nebraska, roped steers in Nevada, and branded mavericks in Colorado. A brave few of them—with a new taste of freedom—kept at it, weathering their faces, hardening their bodies (and maybe their minds), shocking their neighbors, and, along the way, developing the same passion for the cowboy way of life that many men had. In her new book, Judy Buffington Sammons explores the lives of bona-fide women ranchers, many of whom have gone unrecognized in the annals of Colorado's sheep and cattle industries. Riding, Roping, and Roses spans a time period from the late 1870s to the present and includes women from many different parts of the state. Some of the women were fairly well known—almost legends—and some were obscure. Against all odds, they make a success of their ranching endeavors, sometimes accomplishing feats that far exceeded anyone’s expectations—including their own.
