Rawhide Boys Ranch co founder writes a book to document the history of his non-profit and to develop well behaved children for parents. Written by John Gillespie and his late wife Jan, the book focuses on the formation of the ranch and the successes of some of the 351 alumni they have worked with. They wanted to make sure the book was about helping others as well and the last chapter offers parents advice in the form of eight factors for character development to raise their children. John Gillespie has spent the summer selling the book on a tour throughout the state. His next local stop will be Thursday, Aug. 9 at 4 p.m. at Whistler’s Knoll Vineyard in Hortonville.
