    As the great migration of men and cattle headed west to new untamed lands in the 1880s, one man stood tall. Jimmy Highsaw was honest as the day is long - cross him and hell was at hand. Leaving his job as trail scout for John Chisum, Jim rode to Durango to visit his sister, and fell headlong into a plot to bring a herd of the new breed of Hereford cattle from Kansas City to Durango Colorado. A long dusty trail filled with romance, gun smoke, hardship, and death.

    good western.

    Enjoyed it. but, a weak ending. a bit too mushy and illogical.
