Description: Photograph of Troy Phelan, vice president of Great Western Land and Cattle Company, rolling a cigarette while on a cattle drive. Photo accompanied an Associated Press news feature story written by John T. Wheeler titled Along the Continental Divide. AP caption reads: ’Peace and Pride - Cowboys have a hard time explaining what it is that draws them to the range. The work is among the worst in terms of pay, hardship, hours and needed stamina. But there’s the beauty of the land, the chance of adventure, and a feeling of pride in having matched up to a rugged test which comes at the end of the day.’
