Summary A fascinating story of the 101 Ranch, from its early formation until it's termination in 1939. This study documents the dream to reality perseverance of ranch founder George Washington Miller and how he turned a worthless property into a small, self-sufficient city and in the process contributed to major innovations in farming and ranching that helped build the American farm industry today.
