Description
It is June of 1957 and a young family is transported from the cosmopolitan East to one of the most remote and spectacular settings in the United States. The journey begins on a ranger station in the Shoshone National Forest, Wyoming, which is primitive, full of wild animals and totally beautiful. It was the end of a time when forest rangers rode the range, when the forests and ponds and the sky were still filled with native species of animals and fish and birds, when the woods were empty of people and you had to rely on your own survival instincts and pay homage to the forces of nature and the sometimes terrible beauty of a true wilderness. This family discovers beauty, heartache, frustration, tears and laughter as they participate in, and gain strength from, a world that no longer exists.
