Reviews and Comments on the book

a Cattle driveReviews:


"A good read; a real page-turner."   Hugh McLennan, host of The Spirit of the West radio show

"This is ranching country, and I was a bit skeptical [about your title]. But I immediately was won over. I loved your book, every bit of it! I loved your honesty and your poetry and your style. It was very interesting. And yes, you really were a cowgirl!"   Veera Bonner, author of Chilcotin: Preserving Pioneer Memories

"What a charming, heart-warming chronicle!"   CB

"I find myself nodding my head in agreement — knowing some of the places and some of the pathos of the era. At other times your words catch me off guard in their expressiveness and I burst out laughing, surprised by the joy of it!"   SR

"Loved every minute of it — couldn't put it down."   MG

"It is beautifully written and composed, and the stories were enthralling. It is a really special tribute and memory of a way of life, [which is], as you have yourself said, passing all too quickly. It seems there was a beautiful simplicity and integrity to existence there, which few of us any longer have any opportunity to glimpse."   PF

"I got your book on Monday, took it home, and I didn't stop reading till I'd finished it. I really enjoyed it, and now I look forward to giving it a more thorough read."   NW

"All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed your wonderful talent for writing and your story you shared."   DF

"Thank you for following your heart and sharing your life with us. Thanks for telling it like it is. I laughed, I cried, I was touched and sure enough blessed!"   CS

"Thank you for sharing your life with us. I read it through myself and then insisted that [my wife] read it aloud several evenings a week instead of watching TV. Finished it this week and enjoyed it so much that I said, "We must write Nancy and tell her so."   JH

"To me, it had honesty, bravery (how many cowgirls are there?), humour, adventure. I thought the photos complemented it so well."   MP

"Due to losing an engine in Prince George, BC en route to a new adventure in Alaska, I found your book to be a delight and joy…. I'm glad your book was in the motel gift shop while I was motel-bound for three days waiting for my husband to fix the engine on our moving truck. I felt I should write and thank you for writing it."   VH

"I have to tell you that I shed many a tear while reading 'Yes, I Really Was a Cowgirl.' It's a great book and I have purchased another copy for my son for Christmas."   KD

"I sure enjoyed your book — it blessed me so much — 'twas a good read."   BP

"I feel I must write and tell you how much I enjoyed your book. The universe works in wonderful ways as a friend of mine found your book in the library and lent it to me to read. I couldn't get my head out of it, and I cried a lot of tears as I read of so many people I had met while out there. I didn't cowboy on the ranch but went every spring and trimmed the feet on the bull herd….Thank you again for the wonderful memories, as I was able to grieve the passing of an event that was part of my life for the past quarter century."   DS

"It is one of the most insightful books I have ever read. It was an act of courage on your part to bare your soul so much; thank you for sharing your life with me."   TK

"I hope you won't think me too forward as to address you as just Nancy. After reading your truly incredible book, I feel as though I know you personally. You will never know the strength and encouragement I have gotten from your book….I wanted to let you know personally how much of a positive impact your story has made on my life."   TS

"I just wanted to send a short note to let you know that I haven't been able to put your book down since I finally picked it up, about three days ago. I finished it this afternoon and it occurred to me that there was an emptiness inside of me when I was finished it. I cried my way through the last few pages of it, not because of anything sad, [but,] I think, because I felt an ending to a wonderful adventure that I had been a very real part of for the last three days….I thoroughly enjoyed it and truly felt like I knew some the characters as if I had personally met them….Thank you for sharing yourself with me. Thank you for sharing your adventure with me."   KK
