During his long colorful career Bob Fudge drove contract cattle herds from Texas to the Montana range, worked on several cattle ranches in Montana and later settled in Powder River Country in southeastern Montana.
History is blessed by the fact that Bob was especially good at relating stories of what he’d seen and done throughout his time as a cattleman. Knowing the life he and other remarkable figures like him had known and loved was becoming a thing of the past, Bob had author James Russell spend the winter of 1932 hand writing notes that would become, “Bob Fudge: Texas Trail Driver, Montana – Wyoming Cowboy 1862 – 1933”. Bob Fudge lived the American West of the late 18 and early 19 hundreds. Russell’s book is fascinating reading with accounts of the era that anyone with an interest in cowboy life and historical times of the Old American West will treasure and read again and again.
