Dreaming of Sheep in Navajo Country

The Western History & Genealogy Department recently selected this year's winner of the annual Caroline Bancroft Prize.

The Bancroft History Prize was awarded to Jane S. Smith for her book The Garden of Invention: Luther Burbank and the Business of Breeding Plants.  Marsha Weisiger's book Dreaming of Sheep in Navajo Country was named this year's honor book. 

Congratulations to both authors for their exceptional contributions to the history of the American West.
