Year and years ago, I remember reading Centennial by James Michener and learned about the war against sheep by Cattlemen in the West. It was kind of surprising and even though my ancestors raised sheep in Spain, it took me less than a week visiting them and working the critters to come to hate them. My mom to this day will not eat lamb and wants to do nothing with those animals.
Anyway, it was funny to bump into this small article and confirm that it was not a figment of Michener’s imagination. I will recommend both the book and the mini series, I think it was the last one done in full grandeur, full production value and with a lot of great actors.
