In 1883, he entered Montana with a herd of longhorns, and two years later, signed on with the DHS Ranch at Fort Maginnis. He became engaged to Mary Stuart, daughter of one of his employers, Granville Stuart. The couple married on September 29, 1889, and settled on the 3 Deuce Ranch at Giltedge. They had ten children. Abbott was a longtime member of the Montana Stockgrowers Association, he served six years on the Montana Stock Commission for Fergus County, 30 years as a member of the Democratic Central Committee, and 16 years as a school trustee, and, in 1924, he was an unsuccessful candidate for the state legislature. In 1938, Abbott collaborated with Helena Huntington Smith (Mrs. Henry F. Pringle) on his autobiography "We Pointed Them North," the story of his years as a cowpuncher on the Texas cattle drives and his experiences on Montana's open range in the 1880s.

The author of the first selection, "Echoes of the Past about California," John Bidwell (1819-1900) was known throughout California and across the nation as an important pioneer, farmer, soldier, statesman, politician, prohibitionist and philanthropist. He is famous for leading one of the first emigrant parties, known as the Bartleson–Bidwell Party, along the California Trail, and for founding Chico, California. Bidwell obtained the rank of major while fighting in the Mexican–American War. He served in the California Senate in 1849, supervised the census of California in 1850 and again in 1860. He was a delegate to the 1860 national convention of the Democratic Party. He was appointed brigadier general of the California Militia in 1863. He was a delegate to the national convention of the Republican Party in 1864 and was a Republican member of Congress from 1865 to 1867. In 1892, Bidwell was the Prohibition Party candidate for President of the United States. The Bidwell/Cranfill ticket came in fourth place and received 271,058 votes, or 2.3% nationwide. It was the largest total vote and highest percentage of the vote received by any Prohibition Party national ticket.

John Steele (1832-1905), a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church from Middleton County, New York. At the age of 18 Steele joined an overland wagon train for California.
