No part of our nation has been more celebrated, glorified, and mythologized than the West. Here is a book on the women who are still shaping those myths. Raised on a ranch in Montana that she still works, Barbara Van Cleve eloquently describes the life of women ranchers in words and pictures in Hard Twist. Her images and text document these women on the range and around their ranches, evoking their labor, their commitment, and the breathtaking landscapes in which they live.
