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.

Director and producer Shirley Morris learned about the cowgirls who came west as ranchers and homesteaders and the women of the wild west shows. It has become her passion and heart to bring their stories to as many people who will listen.

SHIRLEY MORRIS Director and Producer, 'Oh, You Cowgirl

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.
