Chip, the Little Doctor, Pink, Irish, Big Medicine, and the other boys of the Flying U are here again in another thrilling tale, alive with the vigorous and breezy atmosphere of the fast-changing Montana ranch country. The Flying U Ranch was forced to its last stand when Florence Hallman sent a company of school teachers and farmers to take up claims on its grazing range. She miscalculated the character of Andy Green and tried to engage him to soothe anxious settlers inquiring about subsoils and water, instead of which Andy and the other boys in the Happy Family put in their claims first so as to surround the ranch – and then the fireworks started.

About the Author
B. M. Bower (aka Bertha Muzzy Sinclair) was born in the state of Minnesota in 1871. The Bower family headed west to Montana in 1888 where Bertha became a teacher in Grand Falls. Her first husband's name was Clayton J. Bower, whom she married at the age of nineteen. Around 1900 Bower started to pen short stories, but her novel Chip of the Flying U was her first commercial success and is still said to most representative of her work. It was unheard of for a woman to write westerns back then, and many thought B.M.Bower was a man. Her writing stands up to Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour.
