Book News Annotation:

Hussa, an author and poet, tells the stories of six ranching families in the West and the issues they face in the twenty-first century involving grazing rights, water use, taxes and inheritance issues, operational costs, eminent domain, children's education, and the emerging rural market. She describes the uniqueness of ranching in terms of child rearing and how it involves the entire family, and interweaves profiles of the families with discussion of issues. There is no index or bibliography. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
