"Walter Klein manages 50,000 acres of rolling grasslands, mountaintops, and thickets—ruggedly beautiful places so isolated that at times only high desert rangeland and sky are visible. Wily cattle live there as wild things and Walter’s hands are scarred from shoeing horses, doctoring calves and mending fences on the vast Presidio County ranch. His sons Trevor and Tanner are also deft shots and solid farriers. Together, they battle the dust of the branding pen to sort, vaccinate, and castrate calves during spring and fall works. Roping and riding come naturally; this is the only life they have ever known."
