About this product
- DescriptionA fascinating look at a unique way of life. A wagon sits in the sagebrush-covered desert, while herders on horseback move sheep to high summer range. It looks like a scene from the Old West, but it's actually a sight you can see today. Shepherds still live in wagons, tending their flocks in Wyoming and other places in the American West just as they have done for more than a hundred years. You can still see the shepherds trailing, moving their flocks to the mountains in the summer and bringing them down to the desert for the winter. From breeding season to lambing season, and shearing in between, Cat Urbigkit presents a lively, informative text and stunning photographs that show how sheep are raised over the course of a year.
- Author BiographyCat Urbigkit is the author and photographer of Cattle Kids: AYear on the Western Range; A Young Shepherd, a Bank Street College Best Children's Book of the Year; and Puppies, Puppies Everywhere!, an IRA-CBC Children's Choice. She lives in Wyoming.
