Críticas

" What a great service John Clayton has done us in rescuing Caroline Lockhart from oblivion in this insightful and highly readable biography. I was fascinated from beginning to end with this story of a woman who not only wrote stories of the West, but lived and loved it." -- Mary Clearman Blew, author of "All but the Waltz"


" Expertly researched and wonderfully written, this biography of Lockhart expands the genre to a meditation on frontier, feminism, and the vagaries of literary hubris. Clayton has rendered a riveting portrait of a woman both troubled and brave; a character caught up in the fiction of her own life." -- Mark Spragg, author of "An Unfinished Life"


" A fresh and highly original portrait of that quirky, irascible writer of the range, Caroline Lockhart. Like the author herself, Clayton' s work winds through a landscape both factual and fantastic; in the end he manages to shine light not merely on one unforgettable woman, but on the appetites and yearnings that have driven many of our most cherished notions of the American West." -- Gary Ferguson, author of "The Great Divide"


" A very interesting, well-written, and well-documented look at an early Western woman writer who has not previously received the recognition she deserves. Caroline Lockhart is such a complex figure-- talented, beautiful, energetic, and often headstrong, but also conniving, insecure, and mean spirited-- that she will be of interest to readers who have never heard of her work. I stayed up late to finish it because I couldn''t put it down!" -- Sue Hart, Montana State University- Billings


& nbsp; " As biographies go, this is no doubt the best I have read in years. " -- Linda Wommack, True West

"In "The Cowboy Girl," author and essayist John Clayton presents a warm portrait of a woman whose strong spirit and independent vision perfectly embodied the American West. As part of the University of Nebraska's Women in the West series, Clayton's biography provides a voice to the little-known legend."--"Bloomsbury Review"

"The Wyoming legend, Caroline Lockhart, is immortalized in the new biography by Clayton."-Holly Strother, The Casper Journal

Reseña del editor

In 1901, Philadelphia's celebrity female journalist stepped off a train in Blackfoot, Montana, and into a world of living legends. The miners and frontiersmen, Indians and trappers that Caroline Lockhart met there inspired this beautiful, single, strong-willed woman to live a life she had only dreamed about in what remained of the Wild West.
