This photo-intensive book by Nancy Weidel tells the story of the history and evolution of the sheep wagon and its use. Chapters cover the early days of western sheep raising; the origins and manufacturing of sheepwagons along with the traditions surrounding the sheepherders and their families.
Author Weidel spent years interviewing sheepmen and women, sheepherders, wagon builders, and experts for this.
Many photos of old sheep camps make this book a must for the sheepwagon restorer. Sheepwagon Plans and a book on "How I Built a Sheepherder's Wagon" also available.
