Book Review of
In this relatable, charming book, Ree unveils real goings-on in the Drummond house and around the ranch. In stories brimming with the lively wit and humor found in her cookbooks and her bestselling love story, The Pioneer Woman: Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, Ree pulls back the curtain and shares her experiences with childbirth, wildlife, isolation, teenagers, in-laws, and a twenty-five-year marriage to a cowboy/rancher.
A celebration of family life, love, and (mostly) laughter, Frontier Follies is a keepsake to curl up with, have a good laugh, and remember all that’s wonderful (and funny) about family.
Frontier Follies by Ree Drummond was a fun read for fans of The Pioneer Woman. Reading the book reminded me of her blog back in the early days.
I have read her blog The Pioneer Woman for years and own several of her cookbooks. I live in Oklahoma, and I love what she has done in promoting our state. This book was so much fun to read. It was easy to pick up and down because each chapter was written in an essay style. She shared stories about kids, ranching, living in the country and life with snakes and skunks, and more. It really did remind me of her old blog posts that were about her family and life on the ranch. A few of the stories were ones I remember from her site, but most of them were new stories.
This book actually made me long for the early days of her site again. In the last few years, her site has changed with more entertainment and movie type stories along with promoting her products. I get why she changed her site, but I do miss the type of posts that she used to do. If you are like me and miss the type of stuff that The Pioneer Woman used to post, then I think you will love this book.
