One Woman's Adventure A Customer A Cowman's Wife is a fasinating account of one woman's adventure in south-western Arizona. Mary Kidder Rak captured this chapter of her life in very personal and humurous terms as well as giving us a glimpse into ranch life in the early 1900's. If you're looking for a book that gives you an up close and personal view of the life of an adventurous woman or of life in the American SW., this is a must read! PS: Check your maps for the ranch Mary and her husband lived on, it's still a landmark!. Excellent Arizona History As a native Arizonan, I spent many years in and around the area of the setting of this book. The descriptions are crisply accurate, and the author's affinity for the West emerges on every page. She tells mini-stories with wry amusement spiced with realism so that readers are drawn into the daily life that cattlemen of that era lived. As shown in the wolf hunt chapter, the daily wrestle with nature and life in the West is not minimized into misled modern concern for animals with fangs. This is no glamorous depic. Great book! Stacy A. Winn Excellent read. This is a great documentation of what life was like on a working cattle ranch in the 20s and 30s. Also full of local history. Mary Kidder Rak was a well educated woman for her times, and a very good writer. Several other women tried to follow in her footsteps, but nobody can touch her, In My Humble Opinion.
