Product Overview

Narrated by 107-year-old Josie Watson Stewart, The Roan Maverick tells of an ongoing quest for justice after the range wars of the late 19th century devastate Josie's family and way of life. She had come to Wyoming as a young bride in 1887, eager for the opportunities the frontier offered, but quickly found herself embroiled in a political controversy. The worst winter on record had toppled the great Beef Bonanza, and the struggling cattle companies were losing their unchallenged dominance of the open range as their former employees--expert rangemen--were filing homestead claims and going into business for themselves. Through their power in government, the cattlemen wage a political war on these small competitors, igniting a range rebellion that claims the lives of many. Stewart recalls these events with straightforward honesty as well as a desire for the justice that forever eludes her.
