As a book written from a woman’s point of view, Heart-Diamond offers some unique commentary on the “cowboy” way of life.
Greenwood describes growing up on a working cattle ranch in Southeastern New Mexico, beginning with an incident in her childhood and concluding with her return to the ranch after a lengthy absence. The book features various members of her family in settings and situations typical of daily life not only on the Heart-Diamond but on any small, family-operated ranch: rounding up cattle, fixing windmills, and helping a heifer to calve. Her humorous sketches celebrate western culture and the love that holds the family together.
