Set at the turn of the last century, Pecos Bill, John Henry and Paul Bunyan blaze a legendary trail across America as they save a young boy and his family whose home is threatened by a greedy robber baron.
When young Daniel Hacket's family farm is threatened by a ruthless businessman, he runs away with the land deed tucked away for safe keeping. He finds himself magically transported to a mysterious, wide-open desert, where he meets the mythical Pecos Bill, who agrees to help the young boy home. On the way, they pick up some of Bill's friends, including Paul Bunyon and John Henry, who enlist in the fight to save the family farm. In the end, Daniel learns that nothing's impossible if he only believes.
