ABOUT THIS BOOK
Cowgil Trail is part of a six-book series about four generations of the Morgan family living, fighting, and thriving amidst a turbulent Texas history spanning from 1845 to 1896. Although a series, each book book can be read on its own.
In 1884 Maggie Porter returns to the Rocking P Ranch. The sanatorium was not able to save her mother and now her father’s health is failing. When the cowboys walk off the job leaving no one to drive the cattle to market, head ranch hand, Alex Bright, cannot convince the men to stay. How could Alex let this happen?
Maggie is desperate to save the ranch and she turns to the town’s women for help. The new cowgirls must herd, rope, and drive the cattle to market. With only two days left, outlaws charge the small band of cowgirls in an effort to start a stampede. The cattle begin to scatter. Will they lose everything? Where will their help come from?
MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Growing up on the Rock P Ranch, Maggie Porter never thought she would one day be the one to save her father’s ranch by driving a herd of cattle to market. But that’s just what happened, along with all of the other women around, in this River North fiction by Susan Page Davis. Imagine what ranch manager Alex Bright and his men thought about women taking over their job?
I found this book a wonderful and interesting historical read. Maggie was a daddy’s girl, but she was also strong-willed and determined. She always had her eye on Alex from the first day he came to work for her dad, and after returning home from two years away from the ranch, Alex is as handsome as ever, but Maggie can’t believe he decides to side with the other ranch hands against her father. With realistic and interesting characters, Cowgirl Trail captured my interest from the beginning. Having read all of the Texas Trails series about the Morgan family, I was excited to be able to read this book as well, and it didn’t disappoint.
I highly recommend Cowgirl Trail for a fun, light and interesting read. You will be glad you picked up a copy of this book!
