Nip assisting with branding Macappin ranch in north western Sonoma county

In this show, 97-year-old Arnold “Nip” Rasmason talks about his hardscrabble childhood, growing up poor on a remote ranch in the steep ridge country of northern Sonoma County. Nip describes a lifestyle few people can imagine today—a time of travelling peddlers, hunting, trapping, and—on cold, frosty mornings—standing in fresh cow pies in the pasture to get his bare feet warm. Join us as Nip describes meals of roasted robin with polenta, and catching live deer by hand. Listen to the show by clicking the arrow below, or download the mp3 here.
