Doug Bowman, a staple of the western for decades, takes the genre to new heights in this story of a young man seeking fame and fortune in the wide open plains of Texas.

Eli Pilgrim gave up his simple life as a pig farmer in Ohio to chase his dream on the ranges of Texas. Eli believed what he had heard about the legendary state, a land so vast, with so much opportunity, that a man has no choice but to get rich.

So, when the first frost ended, Eli sold off everything he owned, traded in his pigs for a horse, packed up his things, and went, never realizing that a man has to roll with the punches to get ahead, and that the world, especially the rough untamed fields of Texas, aren't exactly waiting for him.
