The life of a rancher is a life full of laughter, love and beauty. It can also be a life full of challenges, tears and a lot of dust. Debbie Raney has lived this life for over 50 years in Eastern Oregon’s high desert, with 30-plus of those years as a ranchwife.
Hair on Barbed Wire is a collection of her poetry, stories and photographs that celebrates the commitment ranchers and their families have to the land and their livelihood. Beginning with an insight into the scars and callouses on a ranchwife’s hands, and ending with a tribute to those who share her love for ranching, Debbie gives a unique perspective into the experiences only those who have "been there, done that" could know.
