Warner Lundberg and his younger brother, Frank, describe homesteading in the Swan Valley in Montana as the children of Swedish immigrants who came to Montana in the early 20th century. The brothers offer insight into the struggles of establishing and growing up on a homestead. They describe building by hand the Pine Ridge School and Roll School—named after Fred Roll, a relative of the interviewees—trapping and selling furs, and encountering Native Americans who had a campground on their land.
