They left a legacy so steeped in American Lore, you wonder, “Could it be true?” Take an unforgettable journey with the cowgirls who redefined the West.

Their contribution to the history of the west along with what they have given generationally in spirit is important and she believes the courage, tenacity, strength and grit of these women has contributed, greatly and unselfishly to who we are as westerners and Americans. Women have achieved so much and in many ways it is because of the cowgirls of the west who, as stated in the film, “…. were more courageous than they had a right to be.

The Historic Hynds Building has reopened as a cultural and arts center. The screening will be the inaugural film event in the unique venue located in the heart of Downtown Cheyenne.
