Main Text
From the clay hills back of his ranchhouse, Hodgson looks down over his 2600-acre ranch near Dorothy, Alberta on the Red Deer River. Sage and cactus stud the slopes; cottonwoods fringe the riverbank. Hodgson came to Canada from England when he was 15, worked as a trick-rider in wild west shows before settling down to the life of a rancher-sculptor.
