One family working to make a going business out of a cattle ranch in rural Oklahoma. Everything required a “can do” mentality for the business to succeed. Sherman’s account of her family’s experiences are richly textured, often hilarious, and very, very poignant. It is indeed about the quality of life and not worrying about meeting someone else’s expectations, corporate or otherwise. I raced through this book and wanted to read more. The only thing missing for me would have been illustrations and/or some photos as backdrops because I wanted to visualize the setting. Otherwise, this is one of the more authentic, heartfelt “ramblings” I have read in a very long time…
5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful tale of life on a small ranch

Sherman paints an enchanting picture of the daily doings – mending fences, cleaning water tanks, chasing steers – that occupied her and her family from sunup to after sundown. The book consists of a series of short chapters, each highlighting a humorous incident that made ranch life memorable. My favorites include dealing with the dogs after they met a skunk, and with a neighbor’s bull who kept sneaking in with their heifers. An enjoyable, light, and well written story.
