KIRKUS REVIEW

Sub-titled ""Discovering the Last Great Cattle Frontier on the North American Continent"", this is a story of the unexplored meadows of a remote British Columbian mountain basin, which proved to be cattle breeding land of unparalleled richness for Hobson, whose future had been destroyed by the depression. Setting off from Wyoming in an old Ford panel delivery truck, Hobson battled his way through unmapped patches of muskeg, lived through nights of 60 below around an open camp fire, took in a dance with the pretty Norwegian girls of Bella Colla, and won the backing of a wealthy Wyoming rancher and some New York sportsmen in his cattle-raising scheme. The authentic aura of this roping and wrangling story should attract a Western audience of all ages.
