The nuclear family, and kin connections within the community, are extremely important means of keeping the ranch son in the area, while the extended kin who have moved out into the wider community rarely provide incentive or aid for the ranch son to leave the region. The wider kin network outside of the region operates differentially for the ranch son and the ranch daughter. The wider kin network functions for the girl not only as a source of models, but also as a means of making the outside community accessible.2 For the ranch son, the wider kin network offers little in the way of an alternative to local ranching. However, these kin connections become important for the ranch son at the time his daughter is of age to emigrate.
