The Mantle Ranch is 525 acres of spectacularly remote landscape .

The Mantle Ranch is 525 acres of spectacularly remote landscape surrounded by the largest National Monument in Colorado. The ranch is a living display of time – human and geologic. The river flows through The Mantle Ranch parcel for approximately 3,000 feet and provides the water for irrigation of the fertile meadows flanking the riverbanks. Approximately 20 acres are irrigated by flood irrigation and a small pivot. By the time the Yampa has flowed from its headwaters in the Flattops Range a hundred miles east, it has provided irrigation water for numerous upstream ranches of the Yampa Valley in Routt and Moffat Counties.

Queeda Mantle was born on a March day in 1933. In anticipation of her birth, her parents started by horseback out of the remote Yampa Canyon in Northwest Colorado. They were headed for Vernal, Utah, where the Mantles had friends with whom they could stay until the baby arrived. When they were 10 miles into the trip, Mrs. Mantle realized that her baby was on the way. Having no choice, they stopped at the ranch house of neighbors and the baby soon arrived. After a few days rest, the parents, now with a baby girl, returned to the ranch. Queeda's parents were devoted to education. They built a school house and hired a teacher so that Queeda and her brothers got their first years of school. All of the children continued their education at schools in Colorado and Utah with Queeda graduating from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 1954.In recent years, Queeda reviewed her mother's extensive notes and photo collection. Using these, she has given the reader a view of life in the Yampa Canyon, a life that was harsh, yet pleasant, isolated, yet with visits from friends and relatives, and educational in the broadest sense. Today the Mantle Ranch is a private inholding inside Dinosaur National Monument.
Queeda, thank you so much for taking the time to write this book. It was a blessing to me and my husband many other people that we recommended this book too. We did make a trip through Dinosaur National Monument in May 2016 and it was beautiful with green valleys and beautiful red paint brushes. We drove through Hell's Canyon but was unable to see the ranch since it had a no trespassing sign. We honored their privacy but was able to take come photos from another area of the ranch. We also took a trip from Wheatland - Riverton, Wyoming in hopes to meet a Mantle. We were blessed to meet Lonnie in Riverton and our daughter came along and she was very impressed to have the opportunity to met a cowboy legend. Thank you again for writing this book and the sequence "Last Ranch in Hell's Canyon".
Wonderful history of a hard time family. I read it twice.
A great story of a family and their way of life, thank heavens Queeda got it written and published. I was married to a Mantle descendent, he was also a cowboy and was a cousin to Charley. I hope Queeda is still alive, I want to meet an visit with her.
After visiting the area in Dinosaur National this summer, we were told about this book. I ordered for my husband and he has enjoyed it immensely! Highly recommend if interested in learning about the life of this family in a much simpler, but not easy, time in our history.
That was a very good book, I had met Charley and Evelyn Mantle when I was a youngster, Those folks were tough, and knew all about getting along with very little, as it was a long ways to town
Great book
Second best book I have ever read
Grass Beyond The Mountains was first
This was an excellent book and had some of my relatives in it
Great book showing happiness from "STUFF" our consumer society tries to force on us!!! Highly recommend to all who have a pioneering spirit.
