Niobrara County Library
The Niobrara County Library is pleased to participate in the second One Book Wyoming program. Three books by Wyoming author, Cat Urbigkit have been selected: children's books "Brave Dogs, Gentle Dogs" and "The Guardian Team" and the adult non-fiction title "Shepherds of Coyote Rocks." Copies of the books are available at the library to pick-up, read and pass along.
"Shepherds of Coyote Rocks" is more than a tale of herding sheep; it is an action-packed true story that reveals the broad spectrum of the human relationship with nature, from harmony to rugged adventure. Urbigkit journeys alone to spend a season on Wyoming's open range, tending to a flock of domestic sheep as they give birth amid the challenges of nature - from severe weather to a wealth of predators. Her only companions are the guardian animals: big dogs and a pair of burros that repeatedly prove their worth in their devotion to protecting the flock.
Urbigkit will present programs in the elementary school on Tuesday, September 22 and will discuss her works at the Niobrara County Library at 6:30 p.m. Stop and pick up a copy of "Shepherds of Coyote Rocks" to read before September 22.
