The Dusty Vail Tales

Growing up on the Empire Ranch in Arizona

This collection of stories is about the twelve years Dusty Vail spent on the Empire Ranch near Sonoita, Arizona between 1914 and 1927. Dusty was a true child of the west, enjoying some delightful and thrilling adventures as she grew up on this large and successful cattle ranch at a time when the west was young. In 2001, Dusty shared her memories with me. I subsequently presented these stories during the annual Roundup celebration at the Empire Ranch in 2007.

Tails You Might Have Herd Before... or knot!

I created this CD after I received a challenge from my friends, David and Katheryn Heinenger of Black Mesa Ranch in Snowflake, Arizona. www.blackmesaranch.com David and Kathryn are living their dream as the owners of a fabulously successful, off-the-grid goat ranch and dairy. They love their goats, and so do I! This CD is a tribute to my friends and their fantastic herd of Nubian goats.


Folktales about goats can be found all around the world where these wonderful animals contribute to the production of milk, cheese, meat and fiber. On this CD, I have adapted seven folktales from different cultures: two from Ancient Greece, two from Africa, two from Europe and one from India. The final story is my original version of a journey tale about an unlikely group of goats making their way from New Mexico to Arizona on their own.

What folks have said about Glenda’s recordings:

“On a recent long-distance car trip, my daughters (9-year-old twins) asked that we bring along the ‘storytelling one’ CD. Great idea. They are mesmerized whenever they listen to it. Forty-five minutes, and not a peep out of them. They, and I, want more.”

“She reminds me to look for the simple things for stories. . . . There is a ‘quiet charm’ that is very appealing. Also, the stories have a wide age range in interest.”
