Cowboy Rangers

True West magazine: Cowboy Rangers of the early U.S. Forest Service. An excerpt:

Given the strenuous work, rangers had to be between 21 and 40 years old. The starting pay was $60 monthly, and a ranger had to supply his own saddle, pack horses, tack, clothing, firearms, cooking gear, bedroll and other sundries.
