When These Thousand Hills was published in 1956, The Saturday Review proclaimed it to be so compelling that it is hard indeed to set aside until it has been devoured. Conjuring up the ephemeral world of cattle ranchers in the 1880s, this intimate saga delights in a Montana communitys boisterous, wanderlusting eccentrics as they chase after love and their unbridled ambitions.

A lively, quixotic revisit to our historic youth, this literary classic deftly captures western drama at its finest, with all its accompanying toils of the heart..
