Sample text

Then he’d climb back up and drive the wagon through. If there were cows on the other side, I climbed down with him and shooed them away until he shut the gate. Then he’d drive up the slope, the horses breathing deep and pulling hard, to a place where the wind had cleared the snow away. Handing the lines to me, he’d stick his fork deep in the hay. With one foot on a side board, he’d scramble to the top of the slippery pile. “Ready,” he’d say, and I’d glance back to see him standing with his feet spread, lifting a forkful.

So this volume is more than an argument for ranching, its focus wider than my ranch or my bio-region. I am usually writing about several different ideas at a time, and my writing has always been intermingled with my responsibilities for making a living. ” Read this book, and others about nature.

Once hay is mowed and raked, a variety of machinery exists for making the big loaf-shaped piles common to the arid Great Plains. In our case, when I’d half-raked a field, I’d see a glint of light through the dust as my father drove the massive old John Deere carrying the hydraulic stacker into the field.
