The people who live in Cheyenne County still embrace many of the pioneer values of their ancestors-independence, hard work, pride in one's accomplishments, common sense and the like. Many of them farm, or ranch, or work for one of the counties many oil and gas ventures. Whatever the pursuit, it's done with a powerful determination balanced with a healthy respect for the land.
