Fred Hauptmann Brown Bag
July 26, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Fred Hauptmann, known locally as a fine mason (who built the chimney on this Josephy Center building all those years ago), is now an author with a memoir called Damn, I Shot My Horse.
The coming of age story about Fred, a boy who is sent into the desert with very few resources to help build his family’s homestead. Many colorful characters come into his life, among them ranchers, prostitutes, miners and other unlikely mentors. Over eleven hard years as a homesteader, hardrock miner and buckaroo, he learns to live in solitude and keep his emotions in check. Oh, he also learns to dig a ditch.
