This week my teaser is from The Hearts of Horses by Molly Gloss, page 50:
Martha had set out from Pendleton meaning to live a footloose cowboy life and see the places she'd read about in Western romances - she hadn't come down to Elwha County intending to stay. But a winter's worth of work would suit her about right. She had watched a few wranglers riding a circle and she knew the work was hard, riding half a dozen different horses every day, some of them considerably rougher than others and sometimes needing to change saddles or hackamores to fit their different shapes, and then another half-dozen the next day. You were in the saddle dawn to dark six or seven days a week, pretty much regardless of the weather.
It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.
I'm in fictional Elwha County in eastern Oregon. It's 1918 and I'm a 20-something woman traveling the county breaking wild horses.
