Yvonne Hollenbeck

Clearfield, South Dakota

Yvonne Hollenbeck is a South Dakota cattleman’s wife, who writes poetry about her life on a remote ranch where she helps with everyday duties, such as putting up hay, feeding a crew, doing bookwork, or working cattle. Although her poetry is often humorous about situations that were not humorous when they happened, her writing also takes a serious side when she reflects upon the hardships experienced by her parents and ancestral family members. Yvonne also is a free-lance author, penning a weekly column in “The Farmer Rancher Exchange”, and is an avid quilter.
