A wonderful story of a CA rancher's fight to keep his ranch and his loyalty to raise his granddaughter.
14 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this movie to be a heart warming and sensitive story. I come from an agricultural community myself, and can identify with the struggles that many small ranchers and farmers go through to survive. The strength of the rancher, Buck Taylor, to keep his ranch against difficult odds gave him a realistic portrayal of the grit of these people. Also, his devotion to his granddaughter touched my heart, and put family at the top of priorities. The cinematography authentically captured the essence of this film. In addition, the cattle drive scene, with the downpour, reflected the endurance, dedication and magnitude that ranchers must face to survive.
