Glen A. Smith recalls how the U.S. Forest Service handled rancher permit abuse and trespass cases on National Forest lands. He recalls the difficulties faced during attempts to regulate roundups and insure that unbranded cattle were accounted for in the national forest recording systems. Smith provides anecdotes of the marksmen and horsemen of the early forest ranger crew. He also discusses cattle grazing on the Cheyenne and Crow reservations in the early 1910s.
