The following provided by Dona Joy Harker Butler.
about Clyde Bennett: He was 14 when he drove a herd of cattle north to Canada from Utah. He only had a trail to follow and land marks to watch for as he drew near the Canadian Border. He was to watch for the Milk River Ridge, a prominent land mark, and follow it to the little town of Magrath. Then he was to search for a family by the name of "Spencer". The prairie grass was up to the belly of the horses all along the way
