• “The woman who rode destiny » by KL Emanuelson. Published by Spirit Gate Studios. Summary: Reb is just one of the boys, an illiterate cowherd who wanders from one farm to another. Despite racial prejudice as a half-breed, the other hands, foremen, and ranchers come to respect Reb as a hard-working cowboy while caring for an orphaned brother. But Reb keeps a dangerous secret; Reb is a woman and her brother is her orphan son.
