As a fan of modern as well as "oldies" style westerns, I was impressed with they layout of this mini-series. The trail drive was only a vehicle in which to tell the story, not hours of it to kill time. Excellent in my book, exquisite scenery, as well as keeps one attention so as not to miss a single scene. The previews drew my attention at first, but the lead actors convinced my wife and I to make plans to see this two-part miniseries. We wanted to see the first part to see if we would give up other interests, which we were glad we did. All in all this mini-series kept our attention focused, but was not without a bit of violence, and slight bit of adult subject matter. But no nudity, and little if any harsh language, which was a relief. Enjoy it I did.
