woman horse breaker in 1800's in Name that Book (June 2012)

Reviews

Beautifully written novel about a 19 yr old man working on cowboy movies in the 1930s as a stunt rider. I love that Gloss always has unconventional characters that are fully developed in her novels.

Nice story of about a young woman in 1916 in Oregon who breaks horses. The book is well written, the story is nice, but nothing major happens in the book.

This was an absolutely beautiful book. I fell into Elwha County like the first page was actually a trap door to another time and place. I felt like I could almost perfectly picture the landscape, the ranches and farms, the people and the era. I am looking forward to reading more books by Molly Gloss.
