Please if you like the stories I post on this site, like and follow me. Please comment too. I am open to more sheep stories from the public. If you want to know more about this industry in Arizona you can find more in my book Where Have All the Sheep Gone? Sheep Herders and Ranchers in Arizona – A Disappearing Industry. It is available on Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, or a signed copy can be purchased from me. Your purchase helps me with funds to record more of the stories of the industry. Thanks and Happy Trails!

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.

Your stories are wonderful! As a descendent of Lester Hiram Fuller, I thoroughly enjoy reading and seeing pictures of sheep. It brings back fond memories of my childhood and times spent with my grandfather. I am not involved in the sheep industry but support all efforts to keep this a viable way of life for those who are.

Becky Thank you for your comments. I am glad you enjoy the site. I would love to hear any stories you have of your grandfather in the sheep business that I did not put on this site. I’m in the process of writing more on the sheep industry. How may I contact you?
