In 1964, during Montana's territorial centennial year, Mrs. Morris (Gladys Mullet) Kauffman of Glendive, Montana noticed the dwindling number of pioneers who had settled Eastern Montana. Too many of them were taking their stories to the grave. Surely someone should record those stories! Of course, there was no 'someone' so Mrs. Kauffman, despite having nine children at home, undertook the task. During the next twelve years she interviewed over 160 of the early Eastern Montana pioneers and published their stories in Glendive's newspaper, the Ranger-Review, naming the column "As I Remember."

In 1964 the Ranger-Review printed the first twenty-nine interviews, most of which were fairly short. As Mrs. Kauffman continued the project, she began drawing more memories out of those pioneers, and many of the later stories are considerably longer. In the latter half of this book, we have grouped the first twenty-nine stories together in chronological order as they were published. Although most of the stories were written by Mrs. Kauffman, a few were submitted in writing by others for inclusion in the original series. In this book we have not changed theoriginal submissions to conform to our format. The same applies to other sources, such as newspapers. These entries appear in italics. And now a note about language: The reader should keep in mind that these stories were recorded between 1964 and 1975 and reflect life expe
