Under desperate circumstances, sixteen-year-old Angèle Morisot steals thirty thousand franks and two horses from her father, dresses in boy's clothing, and flees her aristocratic life in France in 1861 to America. Fortune finds her in the form of two scruffy but honorable cowboys in Council Bluffs, Iowa who hire her as a horse wrangler.
The French Lady's Cowboys is a true-to-life story of the first ranchers of the once-rich grasslands of high plains Wyoming. Angèle's saga is exciting, romantic, historically plausible, sometimes humorous, sometimes heartbreakingly sad, and always passionately alive. The story is packed with action from learning the basics of herding cattle, to fighting Indians and bushwhackers while carving out a life in a wild country. The story is ultimately about the character of the hard living cowboys, and the women who loved them.
