F. Scott Fitzgerald's Summer As A Ranch Hand
At age 18, between terms at Princeton, Fitzgerald traveled to visit the Montana ranch owned by a school friend's family. He did "what easterners visiting Montana often do: he went native. He outfitted himself in boots, brandished a pistol, rode horses, drank bad whiskey, played cards with cowboys, flirted with daughters of neighboring ranchers, and took but one bath a week."
