The First Friday Book Club will be studying two books by Wyoming author Cat Urbigkit this Friday, September 4.
Shepard of Coyote Rocks – Cat Urbigkit journeys alone to spend a season on Wyoming’s open range tending to a herd of domestic sheep as they give birth amid the challenges of nature. Her only companions are the livestock guardian animals (BIG dogs and a pair of burros named Bill and Hillary!) that repeatedly prove their worth in devotion to protecting the herd.
The Guardian Team – In this book you’ll meet Rena and Roo, a super dog-and-burro guardian team at work on a sheep ranch in Wyoming.
Cat Urbigkit is an author and photographer of nonfiction books for both children and adults, sharing the beauty of life in Wyoming. She lives with her family and her livestock animals, including guardian dogs and burros, on a working sheep ranch in Pinedale, WY.
