Storyline

In 1939, former New York City stock broker Richmond Hobson, a man with a privileged past, has become a cowboy, which is his dream job. With his partner, an experienced but sarcastic cowpoke named Panhandle Phillips, Rich has a three-year old fledgling ranch in northern British Columbia near Vanderhoof. Beyond the grief he gets from local banker Roland Tewkesbury who wants to ruin Rich so that he can buy the land for a pittance, Rich may be facing difficult times with the onset of the war. Of late, he has been having dreams of an unknown beautiful blond woman. His dreams become reality when he spots her. She is headstrong Gloria McIntosh, a Vancouver aspiring débutante who is the dream girl of many a man in her own social circle, most specifically Connor McCann. But Gloria is literally swept off her feet by first sight of the mysterious cowboy. Impetuously, they get married as Gloria is willing to give up her current life to become a rancher's wife, something about which she knows ... Written by Huggo

one of the best shows ever
17 June 2004 | by laram_34See all my reviews

Hi all,

I would just like to say i was disappointed to the low ratings this show received. It is truly a shame this show was taken off the air - it was witty, clever and made me laugh every episode.

I found this show a nice break from the horrible reality TV shows, which seems to feature unrealistic situations as well as the lowest of human qualities. I state again, this is one of the best shows ever and wish it was not taken off the air.
