Synopsis

When Edmund Randolph arrived in Montana he left behind an eastern world in which Hispano-Suizas and champagne were commonplace. Once in the Tongue River country, he never missed them. Out of his long stay on the cattle ranges, Ned Randolph has written a warm and free-swinging love song to the life he built as a cattle rancher, to the wonderful people he met there, to the air, to the still nights (and the nights by the still), to the Cheyennes and Crows, to the women, the beer, and the wolves. He writes with life and gusto of a cattle country which was growing from the old era of open-range trail herding into the new West of fences and partial mechanization. Its people are open, natural, and wild as their land, and Mr. Randolph writes of them with boisterous affection. His delightful book is a tale of personal excitement, vast humor, and truth-a loving portrait of the real West.
