Recounted are the journey by wagon train from Illinois, settlement and life in Corvallis, the rough journey to eastern Oregon (in about 1872), the many challenges and difficulties of living and ranching in Harney County in the 1870's, encounters with Indians and conflict during the Modoc War, and Reuben's amicable acquaintance with Pete French "Cattle King of the West" (who he eventually sold his property to before moving back to Corvallis around 1878).
