Abstract/Summary:

Wyoming Bound is the story of a young woman's determination to achieve a goal. As a girl, Gaydell Collier knew she belonged in Wyoming, not New York City. She read, wrote and dreamed about the state, the horses there, and about her future there. This story speaks about the power of dreams, and about what happens when we and those around us are committed to making them come true.
