Let Me Tell You a Story
How did a young mail carrier from Oklahoma put together a ranch in southeastern Colorado during the depression when others were losing theirs?
This delightful booklet tells the story of how my grandfather, Laurence Horner, put our family ranch together in southeastern Colorado during the depressions. Harold Horner, my dad, begins the tale of Oklahoma and how the young Horner's ended up in a small ranching community in southeastern Colorado.
Harold details the process of how my grandfather bought homesteads near each other to build our family ranch. He shares about his family and beginning experience as a rancher. Take a step back in time and witness this family story unfold.
