Last spring (2008) my husband and I joined a cattle drive at the Burnt Well Ranch in Roswell, New Mexico so I could gain authentic experience and add it to my cowgirl story.
Kim Chesser, Owner of Burnt Well Ranch, www.burntwellquestranch.com leads us back to the ranch singing our cowboy songs. I admit, we did not know a lot of old-time cowboy songs but we did sing about Jed Clampet, Petticoat Junction and the like.
We had the most wonderful time. We slept out under the stars in our bedrolls and ate camp food cooked on an open fire by Patricia Chesser. She is one heck of a chuck wagon cook.
