Shadduck (October 14, 1915 – May 4, 2008), also called the "Lioness of Idaho," was an Idaho journalist, political activist, public servant, author, speaker and lobbyist, and the first woman in the United States to serve at the state cabinet level. As Idaho's popular Secretary of Commerce and Development, often leading visiting business executives on horseback adventures in the mountains, she stimulated the state's economy to its ten best years of growth.

With only a high school education she pioneered as a female Director of Commerce and Development for the state of Idaho, and from 1958 to 1968 made Idaho one of the fastest growing states in the nation, giving the state its ten best years in history.

Little’s grandfather, Andy Little, immigrated to Idaho from Scotland in 1894, and began to work as a sheepherder on a ranch near Emmett, where he would eventually manage his own ranch. Andy’s Highland Livestock and Land Company would eventually include lands ranging from Emmett to Cascade, Idaho, and his flock of more than 120,000 sheep would earn him the nickname of the Idaho Sheep King  .

It seems appropriate in Idaho's Centennial year that tribute be paid to the pioneers who helped build this part of the West into the strong and livable state that it is today. Andy Little was a leader among those people. A Scottish youth, Andy arrived in Caldwell in 1895 to begin a career as an outstanding sheepman. Through years of hard work he developed the largest single sheep operation in Idaho, and quite possibly in the nation. For most of his life he and his family made their home in Emmett. For several years he owned about 200,000 sheep ranging over 7,500 square miles from the Boise Valley's southern border north to the Salmon River. At his peak in 1929 his sheep bands produced approximately one million pounds of wool. Spanning the years form 1895 until his death in 1941, this book details the drama of an entire era of Idaho's sheep industry, with hundreds of memorable stories and anecdotes. Written by native Idahoan Louise Shadduck, it brings to life a fascinating story of a western state which drew many Scots, Basques, Kentuckians, Tennesseans and others to an area where they made their dreams come true.

Great book which includes much anecdotal history of the Idaho sheep ranchers in the late 19th and early 20th century.

my husband really liked it but author didn't write it chronically, so made it confusing. I am starting to ready it now

This book is phenomenal. Louise Shadduck was my great aunt and I had the pleasure of spending time with her at her lakeside home. She gave me a signed copy of this and her other books. She was an amazing author and this book is a testament of that.

My father was a herder on this ranch for over 10 years. I have some wonderful memories and photos of his days in the wilderness. I read this book hoping to hear some of the stories some of the herders might have told but it is a good book for what it is. A bit of important history when a sheep rancher could really be self-sufficient and not need a job in town. These were other times we need to know about. It is nice to see Mr. Little had such a wonderful and dedicated manager, too.
