Nancy Kelly Sheppard, 1999 edition of 10 (sold out)

This book started when I found two photographs at an antique store. I was immediately awestruck by Nancy Sheppard's beauty and poise while perched on a horse barreling around a rodeo arena. Thrilled to see her name and address on the back of the photos from the 50's, I wrote to the address on the chance that I might get more information. I got a phone call from Nancy, who graciously granted permission to use her photos in a book work and even sent more for me to include.
