Description

"Iris Wall, Cracker Cowgirl is a gem and will [be] of interest to children of all ages, young adults, and seniors, and anyone interested in reading about a Florida way of life that has all but vanished today. Iris Wall is a true part of Florida history. This book belongs in anyone's collection of Florida books. Excellent!"-Patrick Smith, author of A Land Remembered, winner of the Florida Historical Society's Tebeau Award for the Most Outstanding Florida Historical NovelIris Wall grew up in the 1930s with no television and no radio, but there was no shortage of entertainment in her old Florida family home. She was raised breaking horses, riding in rodeos, and cowhunting with her daddy. Even after marrying her childhood sweetheart, Iris didn't settle into a traditional role. She continued to cowhunt in the scrub and swamps of South Florida while raising three cracker cowgirls of her own. In 2006, she was named Florida's Woman of the Year in Agriculture. As a true "cracker" embodied with endurance, pride, and strength, Iris has spent eighty years of her life doing what she loves most in the world-hunting cattle.Carol Matthews Rey, a second-grade teacher, was named Martin County Teacher of the Year in 2006. She has taught elementary school for more than thirty-five years and had two history projects displayed at the Elliott Museum in Stuart, Florida.

She lives in Vero Beach, Florida.Eldon Lux has thirty years experience as an artist. His artwork is displayed in private collections nationally and internationally.
