This book is part memoir, part romance novel.  Ree Drummond was just passing through her hometown in Oklahoma on her way to Chicago when she met a Marlboro Man-type character across the room of a smoky bar.  He was a  tall, strong, mysterious, cowboy.    Black Heels To Tractor Wheels chronicles how Ree went from city girl  to falling in love with this country boy.  She is now an Oklahoma ranch wife raising four children with the love of her life.  Black Heels To Tractor Wheels is romantic, funny and heartfelt!  And, it might even make you swoon!!
