A sequel to her earlier A Cowman's Wife -- the story of the seasons and the days' round on the Arizona ranch, the sorrows, joys, hard work and fun that made up their existence. She has a faculty for making the creatures around her as real as human beings; she writes with spontaneity and naturalness. But from the angle of ""plot"" this book lacks the suspense quality of the earlier one. A book for those who like to read authentic western material, and good human interest. But not for those who demand full quota of excitement.
