Our Stories: Life on the Lazy B as Lived by an American Cowboy and Rancher

Our Stories: Life on the Lazy B as Lived by an American Cowboy and Rancher

Hear stories of the cowboying life in Arizona and more with award winning author Alan Day.  If it is possible to say someone can be born a cowboy, then Alan was born one. He was the third generation to grow up on the 200,000-acre Lazy B cattle ranch straddling the high deserts of southern Arizona and New Mexico. After graduating from the University of Arizona, Alan returned to manage Lazy B for the next 40 years, during which time he received awards for his dedication to land stewardship. In addition to co-authoring with his sister, Sandra Day O’Connor, the New York Times bestselling memoir Lazy B, Alan also is the author of The Horse Lover: A Cowboy’s Quest to Save the Wild Mustangs and Cowboy Up: Life Lessons from Lazy B. 

The Our Stories series presents unique Arizona and local history topics throughout the year to a general audience. This series is produced by the Chandler Public Library and the Chandler Museum, with support from the Friends of the Chandler Public Library and the Chandler Historical Society.
