    This book re-peoples the Little Porcupine Creek in Rosebud County, Montana. Once homesteaders tried to eke out a living farming semi-arid land where now hawks circle above sagebrush. Eastern Montana was among the last (and driest) areas to be homesteaded. In the rain shadow of the Rocky Mountains, the grass greens only three weeks a year. The author details the diverse backgrounds and struggles of the people who homesteaded alongside his parents. Many came to the Gray homestead to pump water, as their land had none. Supplementing this first-hand knowledge, the author's research in the land records for Rosebud County pinpoints the exact locations of each homesteader's claim. Lost history and lively writing give a new perspective on the short-grass plains. The author hoped his book would reach the descendants of the homesteaders who strove to "prove" their claims but had to move on.
