Montana Rancher Resists Consolidation Coal Company’s Attempts to Strip Mine His Property

Learn about the life of Boyd Charter, a Jackson, Wyo. cowboy turned Montana cowman, who resisted generous strip mining contracts with Consolidation Coal Company and motivated others to do the same.



Strip Mining
Boyd Charter was a son of a member of Butch Cassidy's Hole-in-the-Wall Gang and one time he picked a fight with John Wayne over a horse, but Charter's greatest distinguishment was a lifetime of resisting Consolidation Coal Company's desire to strip mine on his Montana ranch.
