The Spirit of the RangeLarge Print - 2005
The Flying U boys were hunkered down on their boot heels eating their dinner when ranch foreman Chip Bennett rode up with the new hired hand. He had curly blond hair, innocent blue eyes, and dimples, and Percival Cadwallader Perkins looked pretty shy too. But there was more to Percival than met the eye. He was a famous bronc fighter and jujitsu artist. The boys had planned some friendly hazing for the little dude -- and they learned real quick that you don't mess with Percival Cadwallader Perkins. Bertha Muzzy Bower was the first woman to make a career of writing Western fiction, and remains one of the most widely known authors of the western novel. Her first novel, Chip of the Flying U, was an instant success, and led to fourteen novels about the Flying U Ranch in Montana. Her novels are characterized by a sharp wit, a strong sense of family and loyalty, and the authentic quality of her cowboys.
