WINTER OF 1886-1887, ONE OF THE WORST IN WESTERN HISTORY,

I wasn’t raised as an American Cowgirl, although in my youth, I liked to think of myself that way. Looking back, I realize that a couple of trips to Colorado and a job on a dude ranch in no way qualifies me to claim that title. It was during my brief stint as the head wrangler at a ranch in Montana, I met a girl who is, in actuality, an American Cowgirl. Her name is Pam.
