Life is tough, but so are cowgirls. This is the true story of Flores LaDue (1883-1951), ideal for ages 7-9. A world champion trick roper and First Lady of the Calgary Stampede, Flores helped put Western Canada on the world map. A rider, roper and rodeo queen, her story will inspire kids to work hard, blaze their own trails, and rope the life of their dreams.

Part of the award-winning Howdy Books series. Features a special collaboration with First Nations artist Keegan Starlight on pages with Indigenous art. This 44-page full-colour illustrated biography also includes a timeline, archive photos, author notes and cookie recipe.

It fits perfectly with the Grade Four curriculum but is suitable for Grades Two to Five. An excellent choice for International Women's Day on March 8, Stampede Week, and Women's History Month in October.
