Tamara Linse wanted to be a man.
She grew up on a ranch near Lovell, the youngest of seven brothers and sisters.
In the day, she broke horses, chased cattle and mended fences.
Evenings typically found her keeping house with her mother and sisters.
Masculinity dominated ranching life, Linse said.
In her family, respect was measured in ruggedness and stoicism — in the ability to stand firm before pain or fear.
“What matters is what you can accomplish and getting the work done,” she said. “In my family, the girls went out and did everything the guys did, and then also came in and took care of the house and had the kids and did all of that as well.”
