Ranchers, range and wildlife managers, and old-timers tell in their won words about life on the eastern slope of the Rocky Mountains. As fascinating to read as it is skillfully woven into cohesive historical narrative, this collection of first-hand accounts is crucial in understanding how The Range has evolved from a prehistoric home for Indians and buffalo to a modern setting for cattle, sheep, horses, wildlife, and a few crops. This book crosses many boundaries: seasons, years, decades; Canada and the United States; ranchers, farmers, sportsmen; old and new technologies. But always, it focuses on the land and our dependence on it.
