Ranching in the High Desert: Five Generations, One Family

Ranching in the High Desert: Five Generations, One Family shows the day-to-day operations of the Fallini family, including teaching the skills of roundup and branding to the younger generation. The Fallinis have ranched central Nevada’s arid desert for 150 years – for as long as there’s been a Nevada. Ensuring survival of the family’s Twin Springs Ranch has required careful stewardship of the countryside, healthy respect for a fickle Mother Nature and, increasingly, political and policy skill to maneuver ever-changing federal regulations on land use in rural Nevada.
