Learn about the life and times of the famous but unknown “Kit” Carson which included California statehood, the Civil War, early western settlement and war with Mexico.
“Wyoming’s Sheep Industry: What really happened?”
Sheep probably paid for more ranches in Wyoming than did cattle. Sheep provide a crop of wool every year and did not require the same large investment as cattle. Though cattle and sheep wars in Wyoming happened, what we think we know is more the stuff of fiction than reality. From Shepherds in the time of Christ to the Industrial Revolution the sheep business has adapted and flourished and then retreated. Farr’s family involvement brings the business to life.
