Advance praise for The Happy Bottom Riding Club
"The hard-drinking, sexually promiscuous pilot and adventuress Florence ‘Pancho’ Barnes exploded every feminine stereotype on the books. Thank you, Lauren Kessler, for telling her story with the grace and exuberance it deserves."
"Pancho Barnes is an unsung American eccentric who helped keep the ‘wild’ in Wild West. With tremendous zest, insight, and intelligence, Lauren Kessler has given us a compelling tale of a great woman who wasn’t afraid to make life synonymous with risk."
—Karen Karbo, author of Motherhood Made a Man Out of Me
