If your family is with you, you donat need the approval of friends; and if your family is big enough, you donat even need friends! Or you donat if youare Reba Chester. No one else approves of her or the things she does. aA lady, a they claim, adoes not rope cattle, does not ride bareback. A lady does not know how to handle a gun, and most certainly has never killed a man! A lady does not go visit her sister and deliver her baby nephew before leaving. A lady would never ride in a horse race and she wouldnat refuse a proposal from the aristocratic but deceitful young Bruce Lawton!a But Reba does all of these things and more. No one but her family approves of her. That doesnat bother Reba. Sheas a new kind of lady, and the people of Bramble Ford would do well to realize it!
