Summary
"The story of the cattle barons has often overshadowed the experiences of the common cowboy on whose labor the ranchers' wealth was built. Malcolm McLeod (1870-1944) recorded the life of privation and danger of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century mixed blood cowboy. He worked for cattle owners across Montana and in southern British Columbia and eastern Washington. Born in Washington Territory in 1870 of Scotch, French Canadian, and Chippewa Indian heritage, he traveled many miles over the years, but home was the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana where he was enrolled and allotted land. He worked for Charles Allard, one of the largest stock owners on the Flathead Reservation. McLeod took care of Allard's famous buffalo herd and even rode buffalo for Allard's short-lived Wild West Show in 1893. In later years McLeod tried his hand at farming, a harness and shoe repair shop, and the taxi business. These enterprises never equaled the excitement and danger of his cowboy work. It was the labor and experiences of men like McLeod that built the modern Flathead Reservation community and economy."--Publisher
