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

I wish I had known about this show earlier.
21 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

I wish I had known about this show when it was still in production. Only recently did I see the pilot and a few episodes and I have to say that it is phenomenal. The acting, setting and story lines are awesome. It's one of the best Canadian dramas made in the past decade.

The show takes place in interior British Columbia during the second world war with well-developed characters who are easy to get attached to.

My only qualm about this show is that I didn't even know of its existence until after it was cancelled.It's such a shame CBC never promotes their shows. They produce such good quality Canadian shows yet usually there is so little in the way of promotions that most people don't even know about new shows. CBC would get way better ratings if they'd only promote their shows better.
