Later printing. From the cover: “Three cowhands with a dream of owning a cattle ranch made a heroic pioneer trek across uncharted mountain ranges to open up the frontier grasslands in northern British Columbia during the early nineteen-thirties. This is their story. In conditions as killing as any encountered by the western frontier pioneers of a hundred years earlier, the three men and their equipment-laden horses conquered the tortuous miles over narrow passes and mountain summits, hewed their first cabin from virgin timber, and stayed to found the Frontier Cattle Company which grew to reckon its acres in millions. With laconic cowboy humour and the ease of a born writer, author Rich Hobson describes the life-and-death escapades, the funny and tragic incidents peopled with extraordinary frontier characters, in a true adventure that surpasses the most thrilling Wild West fiction.”
