Emmet Tieg and Elsie Tieg recall how they came to be working their home ranch near the Lewis and Clark National Forest, grazing on Forest Service land with a permit, care and use of the trails on that land, and logging. They describe encounters with hobos, fighting fires, sparse wildlife in the Crazy Mountains, and sheepherding in central Montana.
