"The Sheep Queen" is a Western epic in miniature, the story of Emma Russell Sweringen, known as the Sheep Queen of Idaho ("surely one of the most fascinating characters in current fiction" -- Publishers Weekly); the daughter who disappointed her; the grandson who adored her; and the granddaughter, who was given up for adoption, who spent nearly half her life finding her way back to her family.
