As I see it, this is a book with appeal for all kinds of kids. Lure in the kids who only like princess stories with the fact that it’s about a pretty lady who tames a horsey. Lure in the battle fans with the fact that she has to go head-to-head with a pack o’ baddies. There’s adventure, great storytelling, and images that’ll make your eyes water. Yeah, I’m stumped. Can’t think of a single critical thing to say about this one. It’s just purely beautiful. But you’ll have to see it yourself to believe me.

ELIZABETH RAMSEY BIRD Feb 26, 2013

Having found Tennessee a bit too cramped to suit her, giantess and all around decent gal Angelica Longrider (“Swamp Angel” to some) has headed further into the country to set up shop in Montana. It takes a little settling in, but she’s happy enough and even manages to tame a wild dust storm into a steed worthy of her skills. Good thing too, since that nasty Backward Bart and his band of no goodniks are terrorizing the countryside, robbing good people of their pennies. If she could wrestle a bear into submission, Angel certainly can handle a couple of toughs. But it’ll take smarts as well as skills to put these nasty bandits away. Good thing she’s got her horse.

“The barn began to shake, the ground to quake, the windows to break, the animals to wake, and everyone’s ears to ache!”
