Summary: First published in 1935, Old Jules is unquestionably Mari Sandozâ€™s masterpiece. This portrait of her pioneer father grew out of â€œthe silent hours of listening behind the stove or the wood box, when it was assumed, of course, that I was asleep in bed. So it was that I heard the accounts of the hunts,â€ Sandoz recalls. "Of the fights with the cattlemen and the sheepmen, of the tragic scarcity of women, when a man had to â€˜marry anything that got off the train,â€™ of the droughts, the storms, the wind and isolation. But the most impressive stories were those told me by Old Jules himself.â€ This Bison Books edition includes a new introduction by Linda M. Hasselstrom.
