Life on the Lazy B as Lived by an American Cowboy and Rancher – Tucson

October 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

In 1880, Alan Day’s grandfather homesteaded the Lazy B ranch.  This dusty dry tract of land produced a Supreme Court Justice, a lauded Arizona state senator, and a career rancher, cowboy, and land conservationist. Alan explores the ranching and cowboying life from the chuck wagon years of his childhood, through his adult years of increasing bureaucracy, airplanes, computers and now even drones. At the heart of his stories lie adventures that most of us will never experience, as well as a deep love of the natural world.

If it is possible to say someone can be born a cowboy, then Alan Day 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.
