No Life for a Lady gives the reader a vivid picture of the everyday details of the cattle industry from the earliest days of the open range.
When Agnes Morley Cleveland was born on a New Mexico cattle ranch in 1874, the term “Wild West” was a reality, not a cliche. In those days cowboy didn’t know they were picturesque, horse rustlers were to be handled as seemed best on the occasion, and young ladies thought nothing of punching cows and hunting grizzlies in between school terms.
