Two placid cows in a pasture, Susanna and Joanna, dream of being cowgirls and taming the Wild West. They hope to experience cattle drives, a rodeo, a country dance, and more. The art depicts a lot of exciting cowgirl action, and the text is written in a punchy, poetic style. "Two cows/out back,/spotted brown/spotted black./Cud-munchin'/musey moos/dream of bein'/buckaroos." Unfortunately, the book is a bit confusing. While the first illustration shows Susanna and Joanna dreaming of being human girls, the rest of the pictures show them as cows. Still, the artwork is vibrantly colored and funny, and it gives the book a strong flavor of the West.
