Storyline

During World War II, former New York City stockbroker Richmond Hobson Jr. has traded in his business attire for cowboy duds in trying to build the largest cattle ranch in the world in northern British Columbia just outside of Vanderhoof. In running the ranch, he is constantly mediating the quarrels of his two partners, one being an experienced cowpoke named Panhandle Phillips, the other being Rich's new wife, former Vancouver socialite Gloria McIntosh Hobson, who knew little about ranching before she decided on an impulse to marry the dashing cowboy. Pan and Gloria have competing priorities, Pan's to do whatever is best for the business side of the ranch, Gloria's to do whatever's best for the personal side of the ranch. Beyond the continuing issue about about financing the ranch, Rich has a problem in getting ranch hands, all the experienced men who are away at the war. As such, Rich is forced to hire a bunch of inexperienced teenagers to help him run the ranch. Written by Huggo

just beautiful
9 July 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

its virtue - the right tone for a story who mixes adventure, western clichés and good humor with a family life far from old life style. its charm source - the inspired cast. its sin - it has the rare gift to seems be too short as episode, as series. the smart thing - courage to use new form for classic subject. and the science to do it credible. a series for entire family, with small Hallmark crumbs but only for taste, with nice characters and with Yannick Bisson who does a real good job. pictures from a small world, image of a high ambition, it has the all qualities to be favorite of large public. and that is the important thing. because it has the air of a lovely place from many childhood's dreams.
