Now tell me Mr Lawton, how do you enjoy being our head Bobby? That's what we call our policemen, you know. Or perhaps you don't know. You are evidently not a, travelled man
I haven't had any desire to travel half way around the world... see a country that's half the size of a good ranch in Texas.

If you love the wide open space of horse & cattle country, you'll love this mini-series!
Spoiled rich cattle barrons in the 1800's want to drive out the poor squatter/settlers who gather up & keep any stray calves they may find. But that's not the real reason they have to be driven out. It's just plain greed & prejudice.
Rachel Ward is always likable & here plays a harlot w/a newspaper-writing husband.
Tom Berenger is clearly the star of this series & is the eldest & most respected of the 3 Hammett brothers doing battle w/the barrons & trying to keep the peace. Luke Perry is certainly playing a different role here & deservedly so. I heard he didn't know how to ride a horse before he signed on for this part. You'd never know it watching him do practically nothing BUT riding in this! (Goodbye, 90210!)
The ending is too long for my taste & is very disappointing. I will not spoil it here by telling you who else is killed though.
One romantic scene I must comment on: When Berenger is getting his hair cut out on the porch by his widowed sister-in-law. Ladies, you will totally melt...
