Description - Two Dot Ranch, a Biography of Place by Nancy Heyl Ruskowsky
This is the history of the Two Dot, at one time recognized by many as the largest ranch in the world. So begins the story of a unique part of the vast landscape of the state of Wyoming, a privately held piece of paradise that has changed hands and purpose over the years through the efforts of the settlers, homesteaders, managers, employees, and owners who have called it home since the last quarter of the nineteenth century. There is no doubt that the Two Dot has also left its mark on those whose contact has been brief from John Coulter after he and Corps of Discovery had succeeded in reaching the shores of the Pacific, to Chief Joseph, whose attempt to lead his people to safety in Canada took him through what would become Two Dot lands, and to the many cooks, cowboys, hunters, travelers and guests who have experienced Two Dot's grandure. While some moved on, others remained in the area and their stories and memories and those of their families are recorded here, along with more than 100 historic photos, all helping us to understand the breadth and depth of the soul of one of the most remarkable places on earth.
