Description

Cathy Schloeder speaks of growing up in the Canal Zone in Panama, and moving back to the United States at the age of 13. She describes her college studies, in both California and Montana, and her move to Montana. She further accounts how she and her husband applied to work the Hubbard Lookout and her transfer later to the Union Peak Lookout. Schloeder describes both the lookouts she operated, including power, water, layout, and life living up on the lookouts. She also accounts for how the first line of attack against strikes and fires at the lookouts occurred, and tells a story about her cat and dog who accompanied her.
