Synopsis

A highly illustrated, sassy look at rodeo cowgirls of past and present

 

Wild Women and Tricky Ladies celebrates the female trick riders and other performers who have been a part of rodeos, Wild West shows, and fairs since the 1800s. Cowgirl author Jill Charlotte Stanford follows up on The Cowgirl’s Cookbook by opening a larger window into the lives and philosophies of the girls of the rodeo arena.

 

Riding tricks such as the fender drag, the tail drag, the suicide drag, and the Hippodrome stand are still practiced today by modern-day trick riders. In the early days, Bertha Blancett excelled at Roman Riding at the Pendleton Round-up, winning the race and the purse countless times. Hazel Walker and Babe Lee dazzled the crowds throughout the rodeo and fair circuit during the 1920s with their daring and athletic tricks on horseback. This book celebrates the feats of these and other cowgirls with fabulous archival photography, first-hand accounts of life on the rodeo circuit, and the author’s appreciative eye for the wild women of the Old West.
