James, Will: Home Ranch. V1. 1 May 2011
Will James (June 6, 1892 - September 3, 1942) was an artist and writer of the American West.
James was born Joseph Ernest Nephtali Dufault, in 1892 in Saint-Nazaire-d'Acton, Quebec, Canada. He started drawing at the age of four on the kitchen floor. James, a Canadian Francophone, settled in the new French-Saskatchewan settlement of Val Marie in 1910 and learned to be a western cowboy. Accused of cattle theft, he left three years later and traveled to the United States with a new name, William Roderick James
This is the story of a regular ranch and cow outfit and of regular range folks and cowboys. It's of one ranch and holdings from the start of it when the range was free up till now in 1935 when the range land is still mighty open in parts but no longer free.
In this writing I might be doubted by some as to there being any more such ranches as I tell of, of the range men and women and honest to God cowboys that are in these pages. But them that do have a very narrow backyard or a well travelled route and never get out of it, and partly for that reason I have such people who invite themselves to this perticular ranch, and they find out a lot of things they didn't learn in their trips "abroad."
