Hundreds of leading ladies have appeared in the thousands of Westerns produced since 1903s The Great Train Robbery, riding in and out, never to be heard of again. A relative few of the women stayed around to make a name for themselves. This comprehensive biographical reference book of those rangeland queens is divided into four parts: "Path Finders, " active before 1920; "Trail Blazers, " whose heyday was in the 1920s; "Pioneers, " of the 1930s and 1940s; and "Homesteaders, " primarily post-1940. If an actr appeared in at least eight Westerns, or a lesser number of significant oaters, she is in this book. Generously illustrated.
