Instead, the book dealt primarily with the evolution of the cowgirl "persona" in general, from the late 1800s through 1930, particularly as it was developed in the vaudeville and Wild West-type shows of the time (as opposed to authentic, working-ranch cowgirls). Nan Aspinwall was presented as having a fairly prominent position in that genre, and interesting facts about her self-creation of various cowgirl (and vaudeville) 'characters' for her act were brought to light.
But these were not why I sought out this book. I wanted to read a compelling (true) tale of equestrian travel across a still-young country, hear of challenges encountered (and triumphed over), and vicariously experience incredible, pristine sights in a United States (mostly) long since gone. For any of that, I will definitely have to seek elsewhere!
