My husband, Harvey, and I used to live on a ranch in the North Rupununi Savannahs of Guyana, South America, where there was a 10-mile stretch of grazing ground between two places called Pirara and Meritezeiro.

Harvey and I lived at Meritezeiro where he controlled that section of the ranch. There were four cattle boys there.
