About the Author

Long-time Nederland, Colorado, resident Kay Turnbaugh owned a weekly newspaper in Nederland, Colorado, for 27 years. Her other books include a kids' book about the mountain pine beetle and skiing and hiking guide books.


"Thank heavens Goldie's story wasn't lost because she was present at many significant early day western events and knew many of the people who helped the American West become important to our history. The experiences Goldie had in show business and ranching will keep you turning pages until you finish the book and wish there were more." --Gail Woerner, rodeo historian

"A well-researched blend of fact and informed imagination that brings to life the story of a very independent and colorful woman." --Steve Friesen, Director, Buffalo Bill Museum

"After I started reading it, I could not put it down except to sleep a few hours. It was a great 'read, ' and as a western historian, I could not believe that I had never heard of Goldie Griffith Cameron...she certainly deserves to be recognized as more than a bit player in the overall story of the West in times past." --Alvin Davis

"It's frankly surprising that Griffith is not better known -- she was a boxer, fencer and wrestler who took up bronc-busting and who was "given away" in marriage by none other than Buffalo Bill Cody at Madison Square Garden. Turnbaugh's journalistic background serves her well in this lively, history-packed volume." --Clay Evans, Boulder Daily Camera

"History made delightful--Hollywood and western fiction writers have all too often underestimated how exciting the wild, wild west could be if you were a cowgirl. Actual history is not so restricting." --Amazon reader
