Queens of the West

They have the gift of grit, gab and glamour. They proudly carry the flag and they are guided by the Cowboy Code. They are legend. They are emulated. They are the ambassadors of rodeo.

(page 1 of 3)

A girl of roughly nine in a colorful cowgirl costume stands before a mirror throwing poses. There’s the shoot from the hip, the tip of the hat, and the toss of the ponytail. She tries out her expressions, from silly to sincere, seductive to severe.

Not too many years beyond this girlish goofiness, in an image held in the girl’s mind’s eye, a young woman is being formed.

If the child looks deeply, she can see her future self. Her costume more sophisticated, her glances more refined.
