    Granville Stuart (1834-1918) was an early settler in the Montana territory and his fierce promoting of the area earned him the name "Mr. Montana". His life was the stuff of fiction and included stints as a gold miner, vigilante, businessman and politician. "Stuart was one of the first great cattle barons of the Northwest. His journal is one of the classic accounts of frontier life."--Clark/Brunet.
