Overview

"That's when I saw him—the cowboy—across the smoky room."

I'll never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasn't looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, I'd been struck with a lightning bolt . . . and I was completely powerless to stop it.

Read along as I recount the rip-roaring details of my unlikely romance with a chaps-wearing cowboy, from the early days of our courtship (complete with cows, horses, prairie fire, and passion) all the way through the first year of our marriage, which would be filled with more challenge and strife—and manure—than I ever could have expected.

This isn't just my love story; it's a universal tale of passion, romance, and all-encompassing love that sweeps us off our feet.

It's the story of a cowboy.

And Wranglers.

And chaps.

And the girl who fell in love with them.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

What happens when a nice University of Southern California city girl meets an irresistible cowboy? Ree Drummond spins the inevitable, yet simultaneously improbable tale in this sweet memoir adventure about her major life transition. What began as a blog and then a cookbook (The Pioneer Woman Cooks) became a reader favorite that has now graduated to trade paperback and NOOK Book editions.

Publishers Weekly
Drummond, a blogger and best-selling author of The Pioneer Woman Cooks, turns her popular blog chronicling her improbable city-girl-meets-rugged-cowboy saga into an affecting new memoir. Drummond deftly describes what happens when life takes a U-turn, taking readers from her chaste but steamy courtship with "Marlboro Man," to their subsequent wedding and Australian honeymoon, and into the first year of their marriage where the two decamped to Marlboro Man's isolated ranch (Drummond had been en route to a new life in Chicago when she met him). What emerges is a charming and romantic yet realistic tale of the forces that can test a new relationship—no matter how good it is. She presents a sometimes riotously funny, always strikingly real tale of love and life. Drummond is intensely likable and writes with the facile confidence of one who clearly knows herself well. Plenty of surprises lie along the way, such as her parents' divorce and an immediate pregnancy following the nuptials. She's sure to have readers in tears and in stitches as they share her adventure. In a word: delightful. Includes several recipes. (Feb.)

In this follow-up to the No. 1 New York Times best-selling The Pioneer Woman Cooks (2009), Drummond expounds on the revelations she shared in her immensely popular Confessions of a Pioneer Woman blog to relate the complete account of her real-life storybook romance. Covering the years from when she first met her "Marlboro Man" love to the birth of their first child, Drummond takes listeners through the good, the bad, and the sweetness of her life. The relaxed prose and the chatty tone in which she reads it will make listeners feel as though they are catching up with a long-lost friend. It's easy to forget this delightful tale is not a work of fiction but rather a charming reminder that storybook romances can come true. Sure to be a hit among Drummond's fans, those enjoying the works of Lauraine Snelling and Janette Oke, and anyone who's ever wanted to be Laura Ingalls Wilder.
