I have the humble privilege to announce Where Have All the Sheep Gone? Sheep Herders and Ranchers in Arizona – A Disappearing Industry won as a Award Winning Finalist in the History: United States category of the 2018 Best Book Awards sponsored by American Book Fest. There were more than 2,000 entries and 400 of them, of which I was one, won in the Winner or Finalist category. I am extremely grateful for this award especially as this is my first book. Now, on to my next book telling the stories of more sheep families who made the industry.

It came to my attention a few years ago that the sheep industry in Arizona was disappearing. I love history, traveling to new places and research. These have been combined in researching this history. I am an independent researcher and speaker and also part of AZ Speaks with the Arizona Humanities. I hold a BA in Anthropology, a MA and Ph.D. in geography. My masters was in land use geography and the Ph.D. was more in historical geography. I love to travel and have visited all seven continents and more than 50 countries. I am a member of the Women Writing the West. View all posts by arizonasheephistory
