When Harrison has left to find Jessica after she tells him she is going to speak to Jim, we see Harrison riding over a hill with a number of riders behind him. However, Jake and the other mountain men are in the group with Harrison, when they are actually in town having a beer at the tavern. This is because the scene was used from the final chase scene of the movie when everyone is in pursuit of Alistair Patton. Furthermore, when Harrison finds Jessica, he has only two other men with him when he says, "You two can head on back." See more »
You haven't been outside this house in days.

Burlinson and Thornton give an outstanding performance in this movie, along with Dennehy. Although it is at first thought to be only about love, it really goes down deeper than that. The beauty of nature captures this movie, placing among one of the best I have ever seen. The horse scenes are absolutely fantastic!! Any horse-lovers out there will love this movie!
