Isadore Sara was born in
Eureka. His father owned Eureka Livestock, running 20,000 sheep
almost at all times. His mother had worked in the hotels in Reno
before marrying him.
There is much discussion in this interview
about the range of Eureka Livestock, as well as how sheep were trailed
through the range. Isadore's family moved constantly, following
the sheep herd. He also discusses the business aspects of sheepherding.
The second part of the interview is about
the hotels in Eureka and how they fit into the sheepherding landscape.
Discussed are the locations of the hotels, who owned them and when
his father (Isadore Sara I) and later his father-in-law (Pete
Laborde) owned the Eureka Hotel. It also includes some very entertaining
stories about Isadore's father.
