One Book Wyoming Film Series “Sweetgrass”

  • Natrona County Public Library 307 East 2nd Street Casper, WY, 82601 United States (map)

The Library’s One Book Wyoming Film Series will screen “Sweetgrass” on Thursday, October 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the Crawford Room. This documentary follows a group of shepherds as they guide hundreds of sheep through endless miles of Montana wilderness. Herding the livestock through the Beartooth Mountains, the crew covers stunning landscapes as they brave dangerous weather and the threat of various wild animals, including bears and wolves. As the shepherds make their journey, the film depicts the hardships that they face in their age-old occupation, which seems largely outmoded in 21st-century United States. The screening is part of the Library’s month-long celebration of One Book Wyoming. Call 577-READ ext. 2 for more information.
