The Kemptons: Adventures of a Montana Ranch Family, 1880-1964

In its day, the Kempton Ranch in Montana was one of the largest horse and cattle operations in the West, selling mounts to armies and royalty alike.

Trudy Kempton Dana mines her family's lore for stories to reveal a family of rare vision, grit, and integrity.

Meet Joseph Kempton, a whaling ship captain and early Colorado pioneer; JB Kempton, the first to ship cattle on the Northern Pacific rails; and his son Berney, a trick roper with Doc Carver's Wild West Show, a hotelier, and a friend to British earls and U.S. presidents.

Advancing the Retreat

April March wants nothing more than to be left alone, but her husband has joined the church across the street, and April gets pulled into the mischief of the congregation.

The minister's wife has a secret; the minister has a different secret. Meanwhile there's a squirrel loose in the church, a loan to pay off, and a sacrilegious calendar. Everyone pulls together—just barely—for Christmas. Then something happens that cracks fa├žades, and lets the essence of life shine through.
