This work features interviews with 25 leading ladies who starred in B-westerns, A-westerns, and television westerns. Some were well-known and others were not, but they all have fascinating stories to tell and they talk candidly about their careers and the many difficulties that went along with their jobs. Back then, conditions were often severe, locations were often harsh, and pay was often minimal. The actresses were sometimes the only females on location and they had to provide their own wardrobe and do their own make-up, as well as discourage the advances of over-affectionate co-stars. Despite these difficulties, most of the women interviewed for this agree that they had fun. Claudia Barrett, Francis Dee, Beverly Garland, Lisa Gaye, Marie Harmon, Mary Ellen Kay, Ruta Lee, Mala Powers, Ann Rutherford, Ruth Terry, and Beverly Washburn are among the 25 actresses interviewed.
