The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels--a Love Story (Paperback)
What can I say? I'm a sucker for a cowboy...Ree Drummond, photographer, blogger, host of Food Network's "Pioneer Woman" and author of (now) five NYT best selling cookbooks also penned her tales of mishap and courtship with her "Marlboro Man".
A refreshing account of this physician's daughter reared on the golf course and country club lifestyle, totally out of her comfort zone in the rancher's world. I was a fan of the TV show because of her first cookbook, now I'm hooked on the ranch life. Time by current cultural standards for romance and courtship, this is an account she won't regret when her four children want to read the story of Mom and Dad.— marla

“The Pioneer Woman is at it again, but this time she's not dishing up recipes, rather she's giving us the juicy details of her courtship and her first year of marriage with her own 'Marlboro Man.' It's not your conventional fairy tale - Drummond went from designer clothes and spa days to becoming the hard working wife of a cowboy on an isolated ranch. But through it all, it's still clear that she landed one major prince. She traded her glass slippers for cowboy boots--and she couldn't be happier.”
