Mighty entertaining
18 January 2003 | by (Örnsköldsvik, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I bought this video at a market one summer, put it in the video and saw it. Being a western-fan I really appreciated the scenery and the exiting plot of the creation. Wilford Brimley and Rick Schroeder delivers a very powerful story that centers around their characters. It has all the ingredients to make a western a western. During the first few minutes you get directly thrown into the story of Schroeder's character to get a good background for the following events in the movie.

Definatly a see!
