We admire his independence, and reliance on his own skills and abilities. This historical novel depicts those settlers of the Wild West, whose calming influence on the calamities indigenous to that area, led to our modern day ranchers.The adventures of the Jones family, who, in the late 1940s find themselves the owners of a horse ranch, in Wyomings hard-bitten, arid and unforgiving ranch country, and how they cope with the problems and the joys of operating a ranch, is the gist of this book.Their success is based on a mother lode of can-do training, and a respect for their Christian heritage morality.They create an economically viable ranch, from the sand and rock of Wyomings federal range, but their livelihood is endangered, not by the gunslinger, but by the American bureaucracy.The book poses the question, would an American government willfully destroy the free enterprise, ranching segment of American society, like the Jones ranch, because it does not fit in with the plans of an environmentalist controlled Secretary of the Interior?It is a David and Goliath story, depicting Americas use of federal storm troopers, and an unlimited quantity of power and money, in removing our Wyoming ranchers from their way of life.
