Montana was a big territory in 1887, and the Broken T was one of its
biggest spreads, sprawling over three counties - a good piece of
Custer County, thirty-five sections of Power River County, and a
middling chunk of Rosebud County. It was big enough that a man running
from the law could hire on as a cowhand and be safe so long as he
behaved himself - and as long as he never wanted to go back home. But
no ranch was big enough to a let a man hide from himself. And Charlie
Hatch, who ran the Broken T, was a man who liked to see things
settled. He wasn't about to let any hand feel really safe until his
problems, whatever they might be, were solved. What Charlie did was
provide a man time to come to terms with himself. But each man had to
provide the heart and the guts to do what had to be done - including
killing. 1964.
