Waldo, author of the bestselling Sacajawea, here uses the life and history of Charles B. Irwin as the basis for her mammoth second novel. He was a successful and influential farmer, rancher, producer of a Wild West show and superintendent of the Union Pacific Railroad. He was also an unpretentious, happily married man with no vices worth mentioning. Thus his story is somewhat on the boring side, and it is no surprise that he lingers in obscurity.

Anna Lee Waldo was born February 16, 1925 in Great Falls, Montana, and grew up in Whitefish. Prairie : the legend of Charles Burton Irwin and the Y6 ranch. New York: Berkley Books. She claims her interest in the subject of Native Americans began as a child when she collected spear points on the shores of Whitefish Lake in Montana and listened to stories of Blackfeet and Crow grandmothers. Growing up though, she was interested and had a talent for science; graduating from Montana State University majoring in Chemistry.

As much as I have loved all of Anna Lee Waldo's meticulously researched historical novels, this was a very pleasant surprise for it's unusual subject matter. So little would be known about Charles Irwin and his interesting family were it not for her efforts to bring them to life in this novel - which she did with her usual superb eye for detail. I highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves the west, cowboys, rodeos, horses, racing and family sagas. It has so many great historical tie-ins that a simple review is not enough... do yourself a favor and pick this book up - it's a great read.

An excellent story full of history, rich in its detail! Ms. Waldo did a any amazing job researching and gathering her facts! It's not often you find story that just draw you in and does have all the action of a modern shoot 'em up story! Well done!

C.B Irwin is one of the most colourful characters that lived during the turn of the century in the United States!. This book was a very thorough and complete look at a colourful life and a legend. He was an adventure-lover, and with his wonderful wife Etta by his side, nothing was too difficult for him to attempt. We get as clear a look as possible at the US Midwest from around the 1880's to about 1920. C.B. was raised by a tough but fair father, (his mother died when he was quite young) and he grew up to be a giant of a man, both in stature and in reputation. Irwin was a fair man, who didn't allow any shirkers. Even his children had to learn to tow the line. This is a wonderful book that depicts life as a prairie rancher exactly as it must have been. Waldo's monumental work is well worth the effort to read.

I bought the book in 1986 when something said I should buy it. My great uncle was one of Steamboat's handlers. He and his brothers & sisters were all born and raised in Laramie. In doing family researching on George Shanton, I just finished re-reading "Prairie" only to find it just as interesting as the first time. Life in Laramie in the early 1900's was rough. My families lived in Laramie in the late 1800's/early 1900's and I wonder how did they do that. Anna Lee told how they lived, had fun, enjoyed one another. She wrote about Tom Horn (my great uncle knew Tom & worked for John Coble), John Pershing, the James and Younger brothers, and others. What a book! If you love western history, this book is a MUST READ.
It has been several years since I read this book but I still count it as close to being my all-time favorite. I thought it a better read than Sacajawea. I found Charlie Irwin's story fascinating, not the least because we might be related. Irwin seems to have been one of the last great characters of the Old West. As portrayed by Waldo, he gave us a lot that made our heritage richer. Yet, when I try to search the Web to find out more about Irwin, I find nothing. Thanks to Waldo for helping us to remember such a noble if tragically short life. C. B. Irwin gave so much in such a short time!
Periodically, I check the Web, hoping to find that Anna Lee Waldo has offered us another historical/biographical novel to cherish.
