Growing up on a sheep ranch in 1950s and 60s Corona, New Mexico wasn’t easy. Her Daddy ran away from Texas at eight years old, then a few more times, before finally getting away for good at 14. He settled in the mountains and married her Mama, and together they raised eight children in a 10′ x 20′ cabin. Decades later, their youngest daughter sat in her Beer Garden in Turkey, Texas, typing out this collection of short stories into her cracked iPhone. Together for the first time, the stories weave a tale of hard work, resilience, and the importance of family. From riding herd on rattlesnakes, to retiring as a buzzard guide after only one day, to the first time her family got running water and electricity, Alma expertly brings you into the world she lived. And what a world it was!
