This colorful and exciting film vividly portrays the life of the real working cowboy, a life that has virtually vanished since this motion picture was made by Elmo Williams, Oscar-winning film editor of "High Noon." The cowboy's work is hard, hot and dusty, but it is not without drama and times of humor. Filmed on location in the Southwest, this unique document captures a profession and a place in time that has almost disappeared.
