Pioneer cattleman in Montana : the story of the Circle C Ranch by Walt Coburn( Book )

In 1886, Robert Coburn bought 30,000 acres of land from Granville Stuart. The tract lay in the long shadows of the Little Rockies of Montana, and Coburn called it a "cattleman's paradise." Then the still-remembered blizzard of the following winter erased half of his stock. This is the story of how Coburn overcame long odds, proved that the Circle C was, indeed, the paradise he envisioned, and emerged as one of the progressive men of Montana. But the history of the ranch is also a sturdy thread upon which the author has strung character sketches of the redoubtable ranchers, cowboys, Indians, and outlaws who played out their hands on or about the spread. Robert's son Walt Coburn's account of the rise and decline of an early-day cattle empire is a portrait of real westerners in real situations
