When ranchers from across the country “Blaze a Trail to Phoenix” in January, they will be greeted by none other than The Pioneer Woman. Ree Drummond, aka The Pioneer Woman, will open the 2018 Cattle Industry Convention on Wednesday, Jan. 31, with her story Black Heels to Tractor Wheels.
Drummond, a writer, photographer, ranch wife, and mother of four, runs a cow-calf operation outside of Pawhuska, Oklahoma with her husband Ladd. The couple recently opened the very successful Pioneer Woman Mercantile in Pawhuska where they get 6,000 visitors a day on average. Drummond Land and Cattle is a member of the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association.
Drummond is also the author of the No. 1 best-selling cookbook The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl and the 2011 memoir Black Heels to Tractor Wheels — A Love Story, which debuted at #2 on The New York Times Best Sellers list for nonfiction hardcover. Ree’s children’s picture book, Charlie the Ranch Dog, which chronicles the adventures of her much-beloved basset hound, also premiered at #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers list.
Her blog, The PioneerWoman.com, attracts more than 20 million page views per month and was named Weblog of the Year at the 2011, 2010 and 2009 Bloggie Awards. Her fans have an extra glimpse into her life on her hit Food Network Show, The Pioneer Woman.
