NOTHING TOO GOOD FOR A COWBOY

In 1951 the author told about the beginning of the Frontier Cattle Co., Ltd., in Grass Beyond The Mountains and this continues the story of the ""most isolated, most remote cattle range in North America"". Curtailed by the war in 1939, the decision is to carry on with the British Columbia venture and these are the stories of the years when winter, wolves, development projects affected their land, livestock and their feeding. There's a winter drive in way below zero weathers; the planning and operation of a large scale swamp ranch; the emergency operation for a case of blood poisoning; the far riding and mile eating trips for social life; the times when everybody is ""stove up"" for some reason or other (but ""nothing is too good for a cowboy""); the haunting dream of a blonde girl. Then comes the author's mother from the East and the unexpected clue to the girl but before that there is a fast and fancy ride through Vancouver with a herd of wild mares -- and then, tracking down Jersey cattle, he finds Gloria. Bush country and its hospitality, its last free grass frontier and a record of hard earned achievement makes this true life westering -- modern style.
