The Lady Rode Bucking Horses
Lady Rode Bucking Horses The Story of Fannie Sperry Steele, Woman of the West, by Dee Marvine.
The Lady Rode Bucking Horses depicts an era of the American West when capturing renegade horses from the hills above the homestead served as training ground for extraordinary horsemanship. It documents the life of the outstanding girl who outrode them all at stampedes and roundups and the woman she became, her spirit undaunted throughout a life marked with courage and adventure, triumph and heartache.
Born on a Montana homestead in 1887, at the age of two, Fannie Sperry declared "I gonna catch me a white-face horsie." A remarkable woman who became a world champion, she raced thoroughbreds with a women's relay team known as the Montana Girls, twice won the title of Lady Bucking Horse Champion of the World, rode with Buffalo Bill Cody and other top western performers, became the first woman in the state of Montana to be granted an outfitters license, and was named a charter member of the Cowboy Hall of Fame.
