Maggie Miller, of Grindstone Cattle Company in Daniel, Wyoming, recently donated a copy of "Native Grasses of the Apache Highlands" by Matilda Essig to the UW Libraries’ Emmett D. Chisum Special Collections, honoring her late husband, James Mickelson Miller of Big Piney, Wyoming. 

The artwork of grasses contained in this book evoke a story reminiscent of the people of Wyoming -- one of adaptation and resilience.

Each of the twelve fine art prints print captures the essence of the San Rafael Valley region's shortgrass prairie, which is the southwestern most intact stand of shortgrass prairie remaining today. This wild grassland ecosystem, left untouched by cultivation, holds immense significance from a stewardship perspective.
