Western Veterans Luke Askew (Cool Hand Luke, Easy Rider) and Bo Hopkins (The Wild Bunch, Cat Ballou) star in this smashingly realistic Western from Producer Paul Helmich (Rio Lobo) and associate producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Black Hawk Down)!
Ben (Gary Grimes), an innocent, idealistic teen, wants more than anything else to be a cowboy. But when he lands a job as a cook's helper, he's soon surrounded by the rigors and realities of trail life. It's a dusty, brutal existence in which men drink and fight to escape the tedium, and survival depends on how quickly (and willingly) one can pull a trigger. Boasting tour-de-force performances, spectacular photography and meticulous care to historical detail, this cult favorite is an extrordinary tale and a classic of the genre!
When an idealistic boy talks his way into becoming a cook's helper on a rugged cattle drive, he finds "cowboyin'" rapidly losing its appeal.
