B.M. (Bertha Muzzy) Bower was the first woman to make a living writing Westerns, knocking out well over a dozen. This 1914 outing tackles the clash between the original cattlemen and the encroaching sheep ranchers. Both groups vying for the same grazing land historically was the cause of a lot of tension and bloodshed similar to the range wars between cowboys and farmers.

1912. A sequel to Chip of the Flying U, this book follows the continuing adventures of the folks at the Flying U ranch in Montana. This time around, the main character is Andy Green, storyteller extraordinaire. Contents: The Coming of a Native Son; When Greek Meets Greek; Bad News; Some Hopes; Sheep; What Happened to Andy; Truth Crushed to Earth, etc.; The Dot Outfit; More Sheep; The Happy Family Herd Sheep; Weary Unburdens; Two of a Kind; The Happy Family Learn Something; Happy Jack; Oleson; The End of the Dots; and Good News. Due to the age and scarcity of the original we reproduced, some pages may be spotty or faded.
Just at present an unthinking, unobserving person might pass over this sheep outfit as a mere unsavory incident; but Weary was neither unobserving nor unthinking--nor, for the matter of that, were the rest of the Happy Family. It needed no Happy Jack, with his foreboding nature, to point out the unpleasant possibilities that night when the committee of two made their informal report at the supper table.
