The Last Ranch - The Diamond A Story

Season 6 Episode 3 | 26m 48s | Video has closed captioning.

The Diamond A Ranch was one of several large outfits established in western South Dakota at the turn of the 20th century. The grasslands west of the Missouri River were still mostly un-fenced and the big-time cattle bosses could continue to operate almost as they had during the days of the great cattle drives decades before. Times changed but the Diamond A kept going until 1944.
