Reviews - What do customers think about Hard and Noble Lives: A Living Tradition of Cowboys and Ranchers in Wyoming's Hoback Basin?

Life in early west  Jan 18, 2008
I would agree with the previous review. The author obviously has a passion for telling a story of area of the world that most people don't even know exists. He gives us a snapshot into the lives and history of area while trying to maintain a sequence events that shaped a small part of Americas west.
I think that it really shows how in early America people from all different parts of the world came together, helped one another, and made a future for themselves out of the wilderness.
Noble of western heritage  Jan 8, 2008
Whereas some readers may find this work a mundane reading of a ranching community over the past one hundred years, Mr. Jensen gives us a solid declaration into what it takes to lead a solitary life in such a remote region. And due to current trends, this way of life is slowly vanishing.

From the late nineteenth century up to the present, we read of the scores of ranchers, their families and friends who have made ranching in Wyoming's Hoback Basin their choice of livelihood.

The gut punch of this fine local study is the last chapter where the present-day goliath energy boom is a threat to everything from the land, scenery and wildlife to the moral fiber of those still adhering to this way of life. The gas fields of Jonah Field, just south of this area, are a poster child of how not to safeguard the land and its environs. There goes the neighborhood.
