KIRKUS REVIEW

Far from the formula western is this modern story of Vera Mae, trick roper in a ravelling rodeo, and Lonnie Verdoux, young widower with two children and not the happiest memories of a first wife, who marry and make a tough but successful go of it on Lonnie's California homestead. Each knew the troubles they faced, but there were the snobbish ran wives and the fact that she'd known other men stacked against Vera Mae, the possibility that she might have done better which Lonnie remembered at moments when all their plans to fall through. Vera Mae shows Lonnie that a man must stand up and take chances, ptures the valuable wild stallion she'd wanted for stud, and their dreams of a horse ?ding ranch seem to insure the old homestead's future. Down to earth in its detail d dialogue (possibly not for public libraries) this is holding throughout.
