Storyline

During World War II, former New York City stockbroker Richmond Hobson Jr. has traded in his business attire for cowboy duds in trying to build the largest cattle ranch in the world in northern British Columbia just outside of Vanderhoof. In running the ranch, he is constantly mediating the quarrels of his two partners, one being an experienced cowpoke named Panhandle Phillips, the other being Rich's new wife, former Vancouver socialite Gloria McIntosh Hobson, who knew little about ranching before she decided on an impulse to marry the dashing cowboy. Pan and Gloria have competing priorities, Pan's to do whatever is best for the business side of the ranch, Gloria's to do whatever's best for the personal side of the ranch. Beyond the continuing issue about about financing the ranch, Rich has a problem in getting ranch hands, all the experienced men who are away at the war. As such, Rich is forced to hire a bunch of inexperienced teenagers to help him run the ranch. Written by Huggo

American viewers are interested in having this series available
5 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read all three books and have never enjoyed a series as much as Nothing Too Good For a Cowboy. We could no longer receive Canadian television part way through the series. Please please make them available as a boxed set. I feel that this series would be as popular as the Australian series "McLeod's Daughters" that is now available from Barnes and Noble. They are both about ranching families that are both humorous, moving, realistic to ranch life and suitable for the whole family. There are not many shows that can do all this. So far McLeods has five seasons available and I have purchased all five as have two of my children's families. These are no longer available on US TV so there is a demand for the boxed DVD's.
