Overview

The Last of the Wild West Cowgirls: A True Story by Kay Turnbaugh

Goldie Griffith was one of a kind. She boxed. She wrestled. She rode bucking broncos in the Buffalo Bill Wild West traveling tent shows, and a newspaper referred to the pretty young bronco buster as a "Heller in Skirts." She was one of the first professional female athletes. She was an actor and stunt rider for the brand-new western movies that were taking the country by storm. She was married during a Buffalo Bill Wild West show at Madison Square Garden with a crowd of 8,000 in attendance, and Buffalo Bill himself gave her away. She became a rancher and owned several restaurants in the mountains of Colorado. She trained dogs for the war and applied to be the first policewoman in San Francisco. Was there anything she couldn't do? She didn't think so. This is the (amazingly) true story of Goldie Griffith's life. With over 120 photographs and images. A 2009 WILLA Literary Award finalist.
