CARMEN GOLDTHWAITE. Texas Ranch Women: Three Centuries of Mettle and Moxie. The History Press. Trade paperback, 188 pages, $19.99, historypress.net.

Texas Ranch Women: Three Centuries of Mettle and Moxie takes a peek at women who pioneered the reaches of Texas. Beneath the sunbonnets or Stetsons or high fashion couture, they carved out ranches, breathed new life into spreads and expanded acreage when husbands, sons and fathers fell. Texas ranch women defended home and hearth with cannon and shot. They rescued hostages. They nurtured livestock through hard winters and long droughts and drove them up the trails.
