Forsaking an opulent city life for grassy pastures in southern Idaho and eastern Oregon, the Davis family embarked on the demanding life of 20th-century ranching and never looked back. In “Resurrection Of The Bar O — The Tom and Jemima Davis Story,” they tell their story of traveling old trails, cattle drives, and meetings where million-dollar deals were sealed with a handshake and a glass of Scotch.

Illustrated with more than 200 images and maps and amplified with letters, genealogy charts and photos from the 1800s to today, the book is more than a family history. It's a coming-of-age saga of the American West and the pioneers who built it.
