Review:

"In The Wild and the Domestic, Barney Nelson brings her sane and balanced vision to bear on some of the most heated issues of our time. Her informed and loving voice for our responsible use of land, our responsibility for other species, and responsible living provides a vital and seldom-articulated perspective on ranching and the rancher's stewardship."-Mary Clearman Blew, author of Jackalope Dreams "Barney Nelson has written a stunning book in The Wild and the Domestic, desperately needed as we plan the future of the Real West, the one more and more of us live in these days. This woman has ridden and written over some of the slickest rock in the nation and found a trail for others to follow: it is 'time someone stuck up for the cows,' as she says, and no one has done it better than Barney Nelson, who deserves to be ranked with the best writers of the century."-Linda Hasselstrom, author of No Place Like Home
