„Chip of the Flying U”, published in 1906, was B.M. Bower’s first and best-known novel. The story is about a cattle ranch, run by a group of happy and hilarious young men, and owned by a crusty older man. Chip is a colorful young man who works as a cow puncher in Montana. He is the typical woman-shy cowboy, but he is also a gifted artist. Well, one day, his boss announces that his (the boss’s) sister is done with her doctor training and coming out to the ranch. And guess who gets to pick her up? Thereafter the Little Doctor begins to make the ranch feel like a different place entirely, especially in Chip’s own heart. The result as a quality ranch romance.
