Come and visit with D. Larraine Andrews

D. Larraine Andrews makes her home in High River, Alberta, a short distance from the Rocky Mountains and directly in the path of the magical Chinook wind. She grew up on a farm near Vulcan, Alberta where her lifelong addiction to the history of the wild west began with her Dad's collection of Zane Grey Novels.

In addition to RANCHING UNDER THE ARCH:STORIES FROM THE SOUTHERN ALBERTA RANGELANDS, she is the author of THE COWBOY TRAIL: A GUIDE TO ALBERTA'S HISTORIC COWBOY COUNTRY and GREAT WALKS OF THE WORLD: FROM YOUR ARMCHAIR OR FROM THE TRAIL, A HISTORY AND HOW-TO FOR SOME OF THE WORLD'S BEST HIKES AND WALKS.

                                                                                      By D. Larraine Andrews

They began as would-be cattle ranchers, drawn by the open rangelands and the promise of the magical Chinook. Their courage and resilience established the vibrant ranching industry that is a fundamental part of our history and our future. Then and now, here are their stories.
