Lady RancherBook - 2000
A modern pioneer story strongly evocative of the undaunted spirit that shaped Western Canada. Gertrude Roger's story opens at the old Cruikshank Ranch near Beechy, Saskatchewan. As a young woman, she marries John Minor and lives, works and raises a family on a large, prosperous cattle ranch. The Minor's later owned the huge Chilco Ranch in the Chilcotin region of British Columbia which was stocked with 5,000 cattle. When her husband died in the crash of his light airplane, Gertrude Roger was forced to take over business and ranching operations. Mrs. Roger now lives in Lethbridge, Alberta.
