Ranch life essays from Jessie Veeder Scofield.

We highly recommend these essays from the rugged, yet beautiful Veeder Ranch near Watford City, North Dakota. Rural listeners will relate, and urban listeners will enjoy these illuminating and romantic reflections on rural life. Jessie Veeder (Scofield) is a triple talent ... musician, essayist and photographer. We've been delighted by her contribution to our show and felt compelled to share. And do check out her photos, along with additional essays, at veederranch.com.
