|Publisher:||Methuen & Co. Ltd.|
... half adventure, half murder-mystery. Lorraine Hunter is tired of her California life and decides to go to live with her father on his ranch in Idaho, thinking it will be as interesting as the Western "movies" she's had bit parts in.
Trouble is, she's been raised by her mother and has no idea how remote and lonely her father's ranch is...and how his land baron neighbor, the head of Sawtooth Ranch, has made it almost impossible for him to keep a thriving ranch in the area. To make matters worse, Lorraine is caught in a thunderstorm in the open and accidentally witnesses a murder.
She soon finds that life on the ranch is a true fight for survival, especially with Winfield of the Sawtooth ready to do whatever it takes to own the entire range.

Author Bio for Sinclair (Sinclair-Cowan), Bertha Muzzy
Bertha Muzzy Sinclair or Sinclair-Cowan, née Muzzy (November 15, 1871 – July 23, 1940), best known by her pseudonym B. M. Bower, was an American author who wrote novels, fictional short stories, and screenplays about the American Old West. Her works, featuring cowboys and cows of the Flying U Ranch in Montana, reflected “an interest in ranch life, the use of working cowboys as main characters (even in romantic plots), the occasional appearance of eastern types for the sake of contrast, a sense of western geography as simultaneously harsh and grand, and a good deal of factual attention to such matters as cattle branding and bronc busting.”
Bower's 1912 novel Lonesome Land was praised in The Bookman magazine for its characterization. She wrote 57 Western novels, several of which were turned into films.--Wikipedia.
