<bAbout the Author - Dr. Barbara ten Brink bought a twenty-acre ranch-ito in Gruene, Texas (population 20) where she builds fences, hoes cactus, and runs cows. "Every weekend, I feel connected to my grandmother, also a farmer. Granny's reputation, her larger than life persona, her involvement with the entire community, her enthusiasm for work, her philanthropy are models to which I aspire. Working on my acreage, I imagine Clemmie working on her cotton farm. Harvesting mustang grapes, I visualize Clemmie canning preserves, making jellies, putting up stores of black-eyed peas, okra, tomatoes, and other produce she grew on her farm and shared with all of Brownfield, Texas. Every time I work at my ranch-ito, I channel Clemmie. I talk to her, 'Dear Granny, Have I done enough? Have I worked hard enough? Have I accomplished one-tenth of your humane accomplishments?' I aspire to."
