Cowboys & Indians Special Issue Honors the Spirit of Western Women

Apr 30, 2001, 01:00 ET from Cowboys & Indians

    DALLAS, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- From its moving dedication to Dale Evans
 to "The 25 Things Every Cowgirl Must Have," the June issue of Cowboys &
 Indians gives heartfelt recognition to the contributions made by America's
 Western women.  Cowboys & Indians, leading magazine of contemporary Western
 lifestyle and the 2001 Maggie Award winner for "Best Cover" will be on
 newsstands beginning May 8.
     The cover story profiles Martina McBride, creator of two gold and four
 platinum albums, as an example of the new American woman of the West.  In an
 age of materialism, the independent McBride is unusual in that she refuses to
 tour nine months of the year, and never without her two girls and her husband.
 According to McBride, "It's my kids and my family.  Everything else has to
 work around that."
     In a dedication to Dale Evans, the "Queen of the West," Eric O'Keefe adds
 a special personal touch with quotes from Evans' daughter, Cheryl Rodgers-
 Barnett.  The piece highlights the strong sense of family over work and
 adversity that Dale Evans portrayed in life and in film.
     For fashion, it's "All Hail the Queens" in a fascinating look at Miss
 Rodeo America.  The gorgeous 10-page layout features the sexy, "haute couture"
 side of these accomplished horsewomen.
     Two dramatic photo essays highlight the unique character of Western women,
 some of whom are working ranchers today and some of whom are Cowgirl Hall of
 Fame inductees.  Photographer Jamie Williams' never before seen portraits
 capture the indomitable spirit of seven leading ladies who helped make the
 West what it is today.
     The Premier Magazine of the West, Cowboys & Indians captures the romance,
 drama and grandeur of the American frontier -- both past and present -- like
 no other publication.  Undeniably exclusive, the magazine covers a broad range
 of lifestyle topics: art, home interiors, travel, fashion, Western film and
 Southwestern cuisine.  Cowboys & Indians now reaches a national audience of
 more than 500,000 upscale readers with a paid circulation per issue greater
 than 100,000 -- making Cowboys & Indians one of America's fastest growing
 consumer titles.  In addition, its advertisers represent some of the most
 unique artisans and manufacturers in America.  Based in Dallas with offices in
 Santa Fe, the media company's corporate offices are in Houston, TX.
