I was unable to see Lynda Lanker's exhibit of these amazing paintings in person, so I ordered the book. It was even more beautiful than I expected. The artwork and stories are a glimpse at strong women who have lived the tough life. From the quality of the paper to the artwork and words it is truly a treasure.

Lynda Lanker is a fine artist and the art work in this book is well reproduced, with true color. The pictures of women who work with horses in various ways are so fine. I loved the exhibit and glad to have the book to remember what I saw up close.

Lynda Lanker worked 19 years on this collection of portaits of cowgirls and ranchwomen - and this book shows it! It's a piece of art and will be my favourite book for a long, long ime! I am a big fan of photography and at first a was a little disappointed, but then I realised that these egg-tempera and charcoal portraits are wonderful - by far better than any photography. There is an energy that makes those impressive women seem to be alive in your livingroom, incredible. And the stories behind the women are very touching. They are tough by nature, and they have all my respect.

Absolutely breathtaking portraits. The subjects are depicted brilliantly in the portraits as well as the copy. The reader is led into the lives of these strong women in a truthful way. Their strength and beauty is evident in each sun-burned and wrinkled, or flawless, face. It takes guts to be a rancher, and each woman is unique. They are not all Barbara Stanwick look alikes, but they are all strong.

Wonderful western art.

Didn't really open it since it is a gift.
A great book about a great group of ranch ladies. Every home that has roots to the west should have this on their coffee table or library. Inspiring is an understatement!
