Theresa Kaminski is professor of history at University of Wisconsin—Stevens Point and has published four books on women in the Philippines in World War II. She also reviews non-fiction for Publisher’s Weekly and The Wall Street Journal. A fan of The Roy Rogers Show since childhood, Kaminski claims that Dale Evans drew out her inner cowgirl at a young age, and later developed a fondness for country music and cowboys boots.
"...illuminating and definitive...Kaminski provides engrossing glimpses into the obstacles Evans faced on her road to fame...The deeply humanizing result restores an oft-overlooked yet influential 20th-century celebrity to her rightful place in music history."— Publishers Weekly
