The year before Custer met Crazy Horse on the Little Big Horn, Frank Johnson established his Montana ranch. Frank, his brother Gust and their nephews came from poverty in Sweden to opportunity in America. Their first half-century is a window into Montana history, with adventure, opportunity, success, war, disaster, endurance and humor.
