Long Bow Ranch was huge, even by standards of landholdings west of the Missouri River. The Long Bow riders couldn't patrol the entire ranch , it was just too big, and they were losing cattle in the Lost River Country to the Arapaho. When ranch owner old Jim Welsh had had enough, he went directly to the Arapaho and over four parlays, came to an agreement, the Arapaho would take no more than ten cattle a year. And that arrangement was still in place when old Jim passed on and young Jim Welsh took over. But the winds of change were blowing hard. The new government policy of rounding up the Indians, putting them on reservations, and making them wards of the state, was about to turn the West into an explosive hotbed of fire and lead.
