About Dave Lloyd

Dave Lloyd is a 4th generation Montanan whose great-grandmother came up the Yellowstone on a steamboat to the head-of-track outside Miles City. She knew and told her family stories of the men and the women who lived at the time. Dave grew up listening to her and his grandmother, the first white baby born in the county, as they reminisced of that era's rowdy times. As a young man, Dave was a working cowboy and became assistant ranch-manager on one of the largest ranches in the state, Western Cattle Company, with hundreds of sections of land and cattle numbering in the thousands. The harsh Montana winters gave Lloyd the incentive to leave the rigorous ranching life and get a higher education. After attending college and becoming an educator, then school superintendent, Lloyd began to write of the early beginnings of the state he loves. He researches his books and tries to make them historically accurate, with their characters true to the times. Now retired, Lloyd and his wife, Donna divide their time between Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and Helena, Montana.
