Mustang Sally embarks on a journey that will shape not only her destiny but also the course of world events. Set against the backdrop of New Mexico’s mountains, her adventure takes her to Australia’s outback and beyond, where she encounters other young women who will play pivotal roles in her life and in shaping history. Together, they form the Desperada Cowgirls.

The Desperada Cowgirls embark on a mythical odyssey of self-discovery. Comprising the Council of the Seven Sisters, each member possesses a unique and extraordinary gift. These gifts range from maintaining eternal youth, predicting the future, and creating weaponry that targets ill intent, to controlling wealth and communications, and even the power to cook up changes. The story unfolds as the author explores whether these gifts will lead to a better world or only add to the existing chaos.

As the Desperadas interact with significant global events, they leave an indelible mark on history. The narrative delves into how their actions influence future outcomes.

In her novel The Desperada Cowgirls, author Jane Lawton offers a contemporary reinterpretation of the star sisters of the Pleiades constellation. This fast-paced tale will captivate young adult readers, drawing them into a world where modern stars align to create a thrilling narrative.

    I loved this! It's fun, it's fantastical, it's thought provoking. It resonates with that belief we all have within us, of being one with the wide world and its inhabitants.
