The Outdoor Girls in the Saddle

Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(4.4 stars; 16 reviews)

Mrs. Nelson, Betty’s mother, through the death of a relative, has become the owner of a ranch.

The most important thing about this ranch—in the estimation of the girls, at least—is the fact that it was situated right in the midst of a great gold-mining district. How the girls with Mr. and Mrs. Nelson went to the ranch, spending a glorious few weeks in the saddle, and how gold was finally found on the ranch is told of in detail in this volume.

This is book number twelve in the "Outdoor Girls" series. (Summary from the next book) (4 hr 30 min)

Overly dramatic and very hard on horses! I’m no expert but I feel the horses weren’t very well treated in some instances!


(5 stars)

The 'outdoors' has been colonized by white cis gendered males. Nonbinary BIPOCs are excluded from the outdoors and are kept in the urban ghetto. Also the term 'GIRLS' is exclusionary of nonbinary persons. Finally 'saddles' are tools with which evil cis gendered white males oppress and enslave our fellow equestrian oriented nonhuman persons. If the author would rename the story "Urban, gender indeterminate, persons in the electric vehicle", we would have an instant classic applauded by all correct thinking justice warriors.
