Jack Lambert played a prominent role in the Santa Fe life of sisters Elizabeth and Martha White. He was the manager of the estate they fondly called El Delirio, the home of SAR since 1973. Jack’s adventures with other equally plucky eastern ladies is the topic of this tale by author Lesley Poling-Kempes. With Bostonian Carol Bishop Stanley and her cowboy husband Roy, Lambert wrangled the first dudes at the new Bishop’s Ranch (later renamed Bishop’s Lodge). He later partnered with Carol and Roy to rebuild historic San Gabriel on the Rio Grande into a premier guest ranch. At San Gabriel he met Mary Cabot Wheelwright and rode numerous times into the outback with Stanley, Wheelwright, and their many intrepid women friends.
