In her new book “A Ranchwife’s Slant,” humor columnist and speaker Amy Kirk candidly profiles the big things in life in small but humorous ways: marriage, parenting, the gender gap and problem solving, all under the premise of living and working with cattle.

Kirk’s weekly column is syndicated in various newspapers, including each Monday’s Daily Republic.

Kirk doesn’t candy-coat what family life is like with cows and openly shares the good, the bad and the crazy of her family’s lifestyle. She offers an entertaining perspective of what it’s like being a ranch wife raising a family and livestock alongside her husband Art.

In this first anthology of her previously published humor columns, she covers topics that husbands, wives, men, women and parents can relate to with vignettes of her family and ranch life in rural Pringle, in western South Dakota. Included are Kirk ranch photos and quotes from her personal collection of her kids’ comical witticisms.
