Poetry of the American West
by Patricia Frolander
Married into It is a collection of poems written by Wyoming rancher Patricia Frolander. This book shows the struggles and harshness of ranching life, along with the value of community and family. Frolander draws the reader into her life where the beauty and vastness of the Wyoming landscape combine with the partnership of husband and wife. These poems show the versatility of a woman rancher, who tends her children, livestock and garden, drives equipment, puts up hay, cooks, fences, and all the while nurtures the community.
