About the Book -- Book 1 of the Wind Anthologies


Edited by Linda M. Hasselstrom, Gaydell Collier & Nancy Curtis

True life stories and poems by more than 200 High Plains women: sheep and cattle ranchers, grassland farmers, rural teachers and wilderness rangers. Some are native to the region, some are transplants, but all have made their living, at least in part, from the land.

Here are stories, both touching and hilarious, on the many uses of baling wire, surviving the weather, birthing animals, how to navigate a tractor, and how to tell the real cowboys from the fakes.

With contributor biographies, map and introduction.
