Sharon MacQuarrie talks about moving to Swan Valley, Montana, when she was six years old, while her father was working in Missoula, Montana. She recalls how her family, with the help of their friend Tyne Laird, settled and worked on a dude ranch in the valley, which in the mid-20th century still lacked electricity and modern conveniences. She discusses her family’s work on the ranch and the guest services they provided. MacQuarrie also describes the property, the trails in the area, and how much she enjoyed growing up in the Swan Valley.
