About this product
- DescriptionIris Wall was anything but an average girl. While most girls in 1948 were learning how to quilt and crochet, Iris was a twistin', turnin', buckin' bundle of blue twisted steel. She grew up breaking horses, and riding rodeos in Florida. Although her family didn't have a radio or television, there was never any shortage of entertainment. There were weekend bonfires and riding everywhere on her very own horse, but the thing Iris loved most in the world was cow hunting. In fact, she hunted cows for more than seventy years. First with her daddy, then her husband, and later with three cracker cowgirls of her own. This children's biography tells how Cracker cowhunter Iris Wall grew up in America's oldest cattle-raising state. In 2006, she was inducted into the Florida Cracker Hall of Fame and presented with the Woman of the Year in Agriculture award. Old Florida is brought to life through a glossary at the end of her life's story.
