Hellraisers & Trailblazers Roundup

 July 26, 2022

   Working on rounding up all the loose ends for the Women's book, as we are calling it. Let's start at the ending. This is an image for the ending of our story.  

Daily Whip Out: "Olive Sheds A Tear"

   And, here's someone who probably knew Olive and knew the truth about her five years living among the Mojave.

"Mojave Maiden"

   And here is an image that will figure prominently in the proceedings.

Petticoat Dancers

Not to mentione these fine ladies. 

Cradleboard Love

   And, of course, this one.

Black Beauty

   And, it must be said, some of the cowgirls we are covering grew up to become quite famous.

Cowgirl Sandra Day 

And many toiled away anonimously, until now.

The Outhouse Wood Chopper

   For some reason, there were women who were just weird and unexplainable.

The Waver Girl

   Yes, this original photo is from the BBB collection and is a real photograph. As is this one.

Honkytonk Sue's Grandmother

   Actually, Nan Gable, above, won a bet with Buffalo Bill Cody. Her wager will be explained in the book. All of this from the forthcoming book, "Hellraisers & Trailblazers: The Real Women of The Wild West" which goes to press on September one,

   I love everyone of these real women of the Wild West, and I am grateful that there are images of their time on this planet.

"The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude."

—Friedrich Nietzsche
