Reviewing "Cowgirl Trail"

        "Cowgirl Trail", by Susan Page Davis, is the fifth book in the Texas Trails series. I have read the whole series leading up to this one and have enjoyed them all. That said, there was something special about this book in particular that really captivated me.  It was different from the rest in that the main character was a very strong girl/woman named Maggie who was the only child of the founders of Rocking P Ranch.  In an effort to save her family's ranch, she was forced to lead a cattle drive through some rough and dangerous terrain, with a wonderful all-female group of drovers.
        I thoroughly enjoyed this book and believe it would actually make a great movie.  The concept was unlike any historical western fiction I had ever read, and because of that fact it drew me in even more.  The group of women who banded together to get this job done was full of many different character types, each with their own gifts.  It was neat to read about how they took care of the job and took care of each other under such tough circumstances.
        I would recommend this took to anybody who enjoys Christian historical fiction, especially western themed fiction.  The storyline is very empowering to women and is extremely unique.  I would enjoy a whole series based on the Maggie character alone.
