by Ralph Nelles with Ellen Nelles Leger

The author's story finds him migrating from Minnesota to Montana when it was still frontier. He helped build a large lodge, married and moved into the cabin he built. When a major beer company needed a distributor, he found his career and built one of the largest distributorships in the U.S. In his retirement years he became a generous philanthropist. Old photographs greatly enhance the story.
