Description: A Compilation of Poetry containing the authors memories of the Cowboy Way in Southeastern Montana - Russell Country. This collection of verse contains the echoes of stories Bette Wolf Duncan heard as a child-accounts of a time when the great buffalo herds still thundered through the valleys; when Cheyenne and Crow still camped around the Yellowstone River; when mountain men and cowboys, prospectors and miners, rustlers and vigilantes still populated Russell Country.
Duncan also speaks to the modern cowboy whose problems and ranching tools are different from the cowboys of a century ago, but whose passion for the land continues undiminished.

Betty Wolf Duncan was born and raised in Southeastern Montana - Russell Country. She is the granddaughter of early Montana and North Dakota pioneers. Her memories still reside in the Bighorns, the Beartooth, the Tetons . . . In Custer's Battlefield and Pompey's Pillar . . . In the Pryor and in Bull Mountains.
