A review from American Cowboy Magazine, Feb/Mar Issue, 2011
Sam DeLeeuw-

The rancher's wife is often overlooked in song and story.  Sam DeLeeuw writes what she knows and corrects that deficiency with a collection of poems entitled, "Women of the West."  She has checked birthing cows in the freezing cold, pulled calves from hip-locked mothers, and worked in squeeze chutes and received kicks. DeLeeuw tells these everyday stories with humor and insight that women of the West will appreciate.
