Flat Creek Ranch


Joe Albright — son of Josephine and grandnephew of Cissy — buys back the ranch from the Land Trust following Josephine’s death. Joe and his wife Marcia Kunstel are so taken by the beauty of Flat Creek and friendliness of Jackson Hole that they move to Wyoming to fix up the ranch, which had fallen into disrepair. They find a conservation-minded contractor, Porgy McClelland, who recruits a crew willing to live part-time at the ranch during a lengthy renovation project. For the next three summers, there wouldn’t be much space for guests.
