For the first time in history this true story unravels the mystery of the greatest untold legend in the west, Prairie Rose Henderson. Stories and books said she died in a blizzard and her bones weren’t found for another seven years.
Find out who the Prairie Rose really was and why she had to leave her legacy buried in a Wyoming blizzard. The film focuses upon the spirit and heart of the wild west show and rodeo cowgirls. The impact these women had in history and their contribution to our western heritage has been overlooked for nearly one hundred years. Take a ride with the unsung heroes of the west!
