Although I had certainly heard of Fred Harvey and his
famous Harvey Girls, it had never occurred to me how much these young women changed the
frontier forever. With their pristine uniforms and fresh faces, along with the strict code of
conduct Mr. Harvey demanded of them, they were a new version of femininity to cowboys and
other males on the frontier. They are widely credited with introducing a new level of civility to
what had once been the wild West.
Cowboys & Harvey Girls
MEET THE HARVEY GIRLS: These real-life pioneering women were symbols of
elegance in the wild frontier: taming rough manners, falling in love, and changing the face of
the West forever.
Grace Rogers is ready for the adventure of a lifetime. With her family's farm falling on hard
times, she accepts a position with the prestigious Fred Harvey Company and heads for
Juniper, New Mexico. There she meets a handsome cowboy who quickly turns her head. Too
bad the Harvey Girls are forbidden to marry...
Nick Hopkins has a plan: buy a little land, marry, and raise a family in that order. But after
meeting Grace, he can't keep away. Their only choice is to marry in secret...but Nick isn't the
only man entranced by Grace's charms, and this unexpected rival doesn't plan on taking no for
an answer. He will have her, no matter the cost: to Grace, to Juniper, or to the happily ever
after Grace and Nick fought so hard to make their own.
