The August/September 2011 issue of Country magazine includes an 8-page story that includes the history of the Last Dollar Ranch in Southwestern Colorado, and how the ranch was restored and placed in a conservation easement. The article is beautifully illustrated with images captured by well-known photographers, including John Fielder, Christopher Marona and Roger Wade.
We are honored by the Country editor’s demonstrated interest in the ranch and its colorful story. Vince and Joan Kontny started the Double Shoe Publishing Company for the sole purpose of documenting their two ranches (the Last Dollar and the Centennial) in a series of books.
The book A Ranching Legacy includes artist sketches of all the wildlife found on the ranches, as well as photos and text covering the ranch operations. A Heritage in Iron is a tribute to the skilled blacksmiths who hand-forged the hardware for the ranches, and Last Dollar Ranch documents with photos and text the history of this beautiful piece of property.
