Ernestine O’Reilly travels from Ireland to Texas to marry Virgil Beetle, a cowboy she has never met. Virgil treats her more like a servant than a wife. She has to sleep in the barn and is ordered to cook and clean for his whole family. Ernestine realizes she has seen "neater pigs and more courteous donkeys" than the Beetle family. On the wedding day, Ernestine disguises herself as a cowboy and slips out the back door. Full-color art.
