A memoir about being 15 years old and in charge of re-supplying sheepherders (among many other adventures) in the Colville National Forest during the summer of 1934. Walden, who was from nearby Spokane, Washington, vividly recalls his experiences meeting and then working for Cull White. White, a successful businessman and entrepreneur, documented the Pacific Northwest with photographs that comprise the Cull A. White Photographs and Negatives Collection at Washington State University. Walden's memoir is the best account known of what it was like to work for White's sheep farming operation. Walden also became a photographer; he settled in New Orleans before World War II, and served during the war as a 1st Lieutenant in the Army Air Corps teaching pilots how to fly fighter planes. The paperback edition of this book also includes 17 illustrations by Elizabeth Barger, most of which are full page black and white drawings, and 14 historic photographs documenting Ernie Walden's life. The introduction is by Dr. Brian Shute of the Franklin Elementary School Historical Society and Archives in Spokane. Ernie attended Franklin in the 1920s and early '30s, and graduated from Lewis and Clark High School, Spokane, in 1937.
