Devout Wild West farmer Clark Davis works his tail off to provide for his wife, sons Aaron and Arnie and daughter Missie. When his doted, equally devoted oldest son Aaron is startled, Clark, who was chopping firewood, accidentally hits his leg with an ax. He had bled to death if wandering youngster Nate hadn't found them, brought them home and taken care of the farm, way above the kids' ability. Gratefull Clark offers Nate an indefinite farmhand job, all the more interesting as Missy and he take to each-other, but she's also courted by classy railroad surveyor. Once recovered, Clark works out Nate is really Willie, the son of local grump Zeke, who left years ago after his kid brother Mattie's tragical death. Decision time arrives for both families.

This movie can be enjoyed by the whole family. A wholesome drama with some humor infused to lighten the mood despite difficult moments. A nice touching story about a family struck by hard times when the father, Clark Davis injured himself and the family risked losing everything they have because there is no one to help with the farming. Until a handsome young stranger comes along and pitches in to help. As the story unfolds, it's more of the family helping this young man, teaching him things that the family values: love, faith, endurance, and forgiveness.
Highly recommended for the whole family!
