Prairie Fire Newspaper went on hiatus after the publication of the September 2015 issue. It may return one of these days but until then we will continue to host all of our archived content for your reading pleasure. Many of the articles have held up well over the years. Please contact us if you have any questions, thoughts, or an interest in helping return Prairie Fire to production. We can also be found on Facebook and Twitter. Thank you to all our readers, contributors, and supporters - the quality of Prairie Fire was a reflection of how many people it touched (touches).

Sarah Sortum owns and operates Sandhills Safari Tours, serves as the director of planning for the Gracie Creek Landowners and works for her family’s ranch and Calamus Outfitters. Her full-time job is raising Emmett (age 4) and Henry (age 3) together with her husband, Mark. Sarah’s childhood dream of living and working on the family ranch became a reality when she and her family moved back onto the homeplace two years ago.
