Every other Tuesday, High Country News‘s Laura Jean Schneider publishes a new essay on her experience as new cattle rancher in New Mexico. In her pieces, we’ve found the most compassionate and insightful commentary on the Malheur Occupation to date, well-articulated thoughts on “The Era of the Landless Agrarian,” and scores of compelling personal insights. Schneider and her husband are in the first year of managing their ranch, Triangle P Cattle Company.
