"My husband's and my philosophy is that none of us ever really own the land - we only hold it in our hands for a very brief time, and what we do with the land is our gift to the next generation. And some day, we'll be held accountable for what happens on this land." Lynne Sherrod
Lynne Sherrod and her husband, Del, both come from families with long histories of ranching in the area around Steamboat Springs in northwest Colorado. For the past nineteen years, they have raised cattle together on a 1,600-acre ranch straddling the Elk River that is also home to nesting sandhill cranes.
