Ralph is barely 8 years old when his family moves to Colorado for the sake of Dad's health, and the family tries to make a go of it on the ranch. Classic true story of ranching in Colorado in the early 1900's.
Young as he is, Ralph becomes his dad's full partner. A "you-are-there" look at life in cowboy country among loving neighbors and murderous competitors will keep you on the edge of your seat. First day of school, trick riding, Indians, fearsome wind storms, gun fights, and a whole lot more! Some raw language.
