Even though this work is not a full biography of Ralph Olson's life, I have written it about him and the kind of life he experienced working a small farm as a young man. His life experiences during the 1920s and 1930s, as related to me by his wife and his daughter, my great-grandmother and my grandmother, have been invaluable to me in two ways. Not only have they given me a starting point in my look at the Kalispell area in the thirties, but they have also given me a much clearer picture of who and what my great-grandfather was and continues to be in the minds of those who knew him.
