Title

Beautiful, Cruel Country

Description

The country of her title is the hilly, scrub-covered desert along Aravaca Creek, west of Tubac and a few miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, where she grew up on the Wilbur ranch. Whether it was the almost daily visits of local Native Americans or the difficulties of lambing, or preparations for the fall corrida, her precise accounts make the reader feel a part of the historical drama.
