Growing up on the family ranch, Linda Finley fought hard to gain the acceptance and respect as a ranch hand that her brothers took for granted.

Arlene Pile barely remembers learning to ride a horse and run machinery--she was so young. She learned to drive on an 8N Ford tractor with a buck rake.

Lee Jacobsen became the first woman in the state licensed to artificially inseminate cattle.

Meet these and other Montana women passionate about caring for their land and determined to make the lifestyle their own.

Many never doubted for a moment that they would spend their lives in agriculture, while others speak of their surprise and delight to find themselves living on the land. All agree that they wouldn't be happy doing anything else.

Softcover, 144 pages.
