KIRKUS REVIEW

The biography of Lucille Mulhall, by an author who has also done books on Gene Rhodes and Will Rogers, has serious sided Annie-get-your-gun showmanship to its account of the lady who could ride, rope, steer rope and break in horses just like a man, only better. Born and raised near the town of Mulhall, Oklahoma, where her father retired from army life to become a railroad stock man, Lucille soon showed first signs of expertness as an all around cowhand. There are entertaining anecdotes of Lucille's remarkable feats, the protests they drew from her mother, and the glory they brought her at rodeos and exhibitions later on. We get the feeling too, that Lucille lived her trade both creatively and skilfully.
