WHAT THE AUDIENCE HAD TO SAY:
This really gives you a great understanding of the history and life of the Florida Cracker. I never knew "cowboys" existed anywhere outside of the "Old West" until seeing this documentary. This picturesque view of the life of Florida Cattlemen is facinating, and keeps you entertained from beginning to end. If you love horses, you love history and learning about people then this is definitely for you!

This movie so enlightened me, regarding how cattle are raised in Florida. What an amazing history . I was actually brought to tears more than once, from hearing various heartfelt sentiments about the lifestyle, and the relentless development in this state, that not only threatens all of Florida's environment - but the whole cowboy way of life. The immense devotion, and tradition is present in all who are shown in the film, and the scenery is simply magnificent - along with all the rich wildlife !
This movie not only tells a fascinating story, it also brings up the need to return to human values like honesty, respect, and integrity!
