A Dream Come True
By A. J. Dalrymple, Vancouver, B.C.

‘This is a story about a man who searched the continent for what he wanted, and finally found it in B.C.’s beautiful Cariboo country. Let me introduce Fred Davis of Madera, Calif., a tall, rugged, working cattleman, quiet of voice and manner, hospitable, generous, fun-loving, and also efficient in his operations.

But like many of us, Fred always dreamed of the perfect set-up.’
