Frances Conklin has recently published the book, “Sweet Willy, a Noble and Absurd Undertaking.” The book tells the ideas and history of the founding 20 years ago, of Dog Bark Park, which has become quite an attraction, bringing tourists from all over the world to our little town of Cottonwood. It is a story of a one-of-kind business established with no guides other than a couple following their hearts to carve out a livelihood and life together. Copies of the book are available for $15 by visiting or calling Dog Bark Park 962-3647.
