1 CHARTER, Ann Goddard COWBOYS DON'T WALK. A Tale of Two
Billings, Montana Western Organization of Resource Councils 1999 0966647602 / 9780966647600 First Edition Trade Paperback Fine 
192pp. Illus. in text. Anne, a St. Louis woman - debutante, college-educated and European traveller - went West and married a Wyoming man, Boyd - cowboy, bear hunter and son of a pioneer outlaws. At the turn of the century while Boyd's dad synchronized the horses for Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid's gang, Anne's father presided over a prosperous family business and built his stately home in a posh St. Louis suburb. The different backgrounds to the couple provided cycles of humour, hardship and tragedy which continued throughout their marriage. The story of the privileged city girl and the rough-edged cowboy is told with help from oral history left by Boyd before he died in 1978. After WWII they moved from scenic Jackson Hole to a remote Montana ranch, where they fought alongside neighbours to stop strip mining beneath their beloved Bull Mountain ranches, and struggled with the land, animals, weather, wildfires, politicians and each other to make a uniquely American chronicle.
