When Sandra Day O'Connor's grandfather placed cattle on government-owned Arizona grazing land in 1886, little did he know the influence it would have on his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. O'Connor speaks endearingly of growing up on a ranch in the American Southwest, where her life consisted of cattle drives, real cowboys, droughts, and hard work. The frugal lifestyle her parents led taught O'Connor and her siblings the meaning of practical living. The Lazy B Ranch and its many memories remain a guidepost in O'Connor's life today. Her love for family, ranch hands, animals, and the Arizona landscape is absolute as she recalls numerous adventures, desert sunsets, and lessons and values she learned the hard way. Serving as the first female Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court is an honor for O'Connor, but growing up on the Lazy B Ranch is the essence of who she is today. Listeners will sense that she wouldn't trade those days for anything. B.J.P. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
