Rangeland- SouthWest Montana

"..Western land was made for those
Who like land wild and free...
I want the sage, I want the grass,
I want the curlew's call...
Just give me country big and wide
With benchland, hills and breaks,
With coulees, cactus, buttes and range,
With creeks, and mountain lakes,
Until I cross the Great Divide,
Then, God, forgive each sin
And turn me loose on my cayuse
But please don't fence me in."
- from 'Open Range' by Robert H. Fletcher, from Corral Dust, 1936 edition
