Cat Urbigkit has been a reporter, author, photographer and now a sheep herder. In her book “Shepherds of Coyote Rocks: Public Lands, Private Herds and the Natural World”, Cat shares the experiences of tending her herd through a season on the wild open range of the Wind River Mountains.
She tells of encounters with predators, and the gentler and sometimes humorous side of nature’s creatures. Through her experiences, she reflects on how the modern world co-exists with the natural world.
A conversation with Cat Urbigkit casts shepherds in a whole new light, revealing a remarkable world of cooperation between humans and animal helpers.
