Louis Lundean, also, three full page color maps, 24 pages. A fascinating look of one of the greatest of Cattle Ranches in history! In addition there are other stories of the times, including one on Henry Ford and the Ford Motor Company, and how during the period 1931 to 1933 the Ford Motor Company had lost one hundred and forty million dollars, or one million dollars a week for for 140 weeks!
