Gritty, moving, and true portrayal of pioneer ranch life on the Western plains with an emphasis on the woman's role.
22 November 2003 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent. Gritty and true portrayal of pioneer ranch life on the Western plains with an emphasis on the woman's role and place. A moving film, lovingly made, and based on real people and their actual experiences. Low budget, independent film; never made any money. Definitely not the romanticized, unrealistic Hollywood version of pioneer life.
