About the Author

Robert Vaughn is the quintessential Montana pioneer. By his own definition, he had arrived in Montana Territory in the 1860s, worked hard, took risks, involved himself in civic affairs, and prospered. Most important, he had remained on the Montana scene--long enough for his stories of "the early days" to hold credence. The energetic Robert built a solid ranching operation near the present-day town of Vaughn, Montana, his namesake, west of Great Falls. During the 1870s and 1880s the ranch sat relatively close to the Blackfeet reservation, and Vaughn experienced repeated encounters with local Indians and with other bands moving through the area. By the turn of the century, Robert Vaughn's personal kindness and honest public dealings had gained him widespread in Montana.Great Falls residents called him "Uncle Bob." (from the Introduction, by Dave Walter.)
