AbstractThis little booklet tells in words and pictures the story of the lands in the Jornada Experimental Range during the past 125 years. The Jornada Experimental Range is an experimental cattle ranch occupying som 190,000 acres of semidesert rangeland in southern New Mexico. Fred Ares has lived on the Jornada Range for 43 years. He has put together this account of the research problems, results and ranch life not given in the average Western paperback or cowboy movie thriller. Fred knows how to tell a good story--the reader should look for his humorous little gems interspersed throughout this factual presentation of rangeland problems and solutions in the great Southwest.
