"The cow business is a damn fine business for men and mules, but it's Hell on Horses and Women. So goes an axiom of the cattle country. [...] For more than eighteen montns Alice Marriott traveled the cattle country - from Wyoming to Florida - visiting, observing, and talking with the women on the ranches and with their men. This book is the story of these women, who share with tiieir men-foiks the problems and pleasures of ranch life. It's about the city girl transformed into ranch wife, about the women who were born on ranches, and about their families and the cattle they raise."
