This was a bit of a different type of book for me. I liked the history and how the cowgirls were able to do the same events as men but only after time and much effort on their parts. To "Cowgirl up" means to not whine, cry, complain, but rather to be tough and handle whatever comes your way.
It was interesting how there were so many injuries, yet they recovered only to get back in the saddle. This was a well researched book on this topic.The stories that were written about were of cowgirls from Montana, their shows and competitions. It was a very interesting historical book.
