Carolyn Lockhart (1871-1962) lived a life as colorful and as successful as her best-selling western adventure novels or her widely quoted newspaper columns. She attracted national attention as the owner-editor of the Cody Enterprise. H.L. Mencken praised her outspokenness as an investigative report and as a critic of the Prohibition. From her Kansas childhood to her early success as a reporter in Boston and Philadelphia, to the excitement of "making it big" as a writer-journalist, civic leader and rancher based mainly in Cody,WY, this is a portrait of a woman who broke conventions and made her own mark in a frontier setting.
