Also the owner of: http://silversolara.blogspot.com I enjoy reading historical fiction and mystery. I live in Pennsylvania and am a retired business teacher.
Cattle Kate was a delicately raised rule follower, but she had to break away, and break away she did.
Ella Watson's story is creatively told and keeps your interest from the first page. "Taming" the west really wasn't for women was it? Even though it may not have been for women, homesteading is what Ella did, and what left Ella hanging from a rope at the ripe old age of 29.
I really did enjoy CATTLE KATE. Ms. Bommersbach did a great deal of research and turned her research into quite a fascinating, splendid book. The ending pages document dates and times, and these are even categorized in an organized, unique way with wonderful detail.
Learning about the West and how the Wyoming Territory became settled will keep you turning the pages and wanting to find out how Ellla actually lived and what turned people against her and her husband.
If you like fiction at its best, don't miss reading CATTLE KATE. You will get a little bit of everything to appreciate and delight in. 4/5
