May Lillie

Unpublished pen & ink portrait of May Lillie, a bronc-ridin', buffalo-herdin', sharp-shooter from the early 1900s-- She once said “Let any normally healthy woman who is ordinarily strong screw up her courage and tackle a bucking bronco, and she will find the most fascinating pastime in the field of feminine athletic endeavor. There is nothing to compare, to increase the joy of living, and once accomplished, she’ll have more real fun than any pink tea or theater party or ballroom ever yielded.”
