For over a century dude ranching has showed up in movies, books, music lyrics, and clothing styles and I’m going to track it all down. This year I’ll be jumping into the topic with research, visits to ranches, and interviews with owners and guests for a book, a lecture tour and, if all goes well, a YouTube channel. Stay tuned, and remember: don’t squat on your spurs.UPCOMING EVENTS & INFORMATION2019-2020 Events Calendar iPublicationsSee the Publications tab for my complete works.ConsultingMy consulting work has given me the opportunity to work with great organizations.
