Sharing Fencelines: Three Friends Write from Nevada's Sagebrush Corner

ISBN-0-87480-712-3

 

Three strong narratives by three women from the Great Basin who defend what they so strongly value-independence inside community. love, beauty. Sharing Fencelines is well told, compelling, engrossing, political, and ultimately heartening. The West is finally getting the first-rate stroy-telling it deserves, told by the people who live there. --William Kittredge

 

Sharing Fencelines reminds us that ordinary people are the lifeblood of our country. A rancher, a school teacher, a painter who show a fierce determination to defend and protect their lives and livelihoods show the rest of us how it's done: when they didn't know something, they asked questions; when others tried to intimidate them, they stood their ground; when they came to the end of their rope, they tied on more rope. They never gave up. --Erin Brockovich, environmental activist
