"First and Second Kings, Maurice and Harold" is a remarkable tale of a ranch wife’s fifty-year friendship with millionaire bachelor brothers who lived like paupers in the Porcupine Hills of southwestern Alberta. Mary-Jo Burles takes you into the lives of the eccentric King Brothers. With her trademark rustic eloquence she vividly describes what made the pioneer cattle ranchers legends and how they amassed the fortune they left behind. The media called Maurice and Harold King “Hillbilly Millionaires” but Mary-Jo Burles always called Maurice and Harold friends.
