The Divorce Seekers

Imagine you’ve had enough of your cheating spouse. You’re ready to leave. But it’s 1947. And that means unless your spouse “gives” you a divorce, you’re stuck.

Or you could go to Reno!

The Divorce Seekers

From 1947 to 1949, Bill McGee was the dude wrangler on Nevada’s Flying M E, an exclusive divorce ranch (as they were called) south of Reno for wealthy divorce seekers. His job was to entertain guests on trail rides and take care of the horses. At the tender age of twenty-two, surrounded by all those women, he thought he’d died and gone to heaven. A lot of people have asked Bill what really went on at the Flying M E?

The stories are true… but some names have been changed to protect The Divorce Seekers.

  The Divorce Seekers is the ‘bible’ of Reno divorce ranch lore.”
– Judd Pillot, writer/producer

“The images – with their smoky, black-and-white, retro allure – are what brought the time and place alive for me so I could bring my characters to life in my novel … The book is a treasure if only for the photos alone.”
Deb Caletti, bestselling author of the divorce ranch novel, The Secrets She Keeps
