Item Details

"[D]epicts the twilight of a defining chapter in the history of the American West - the dying world of Western herders, descendants of Scandinavian and northern European homesteaders. The film follows a group of modern-day cowboys as they lead an enormous flock of sheep on an arduous 150-mile up into Montana's breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka-Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. A project that took nearly a decade to complete, this astonishingly beautiful documentary intimately captures a way of life that has been integral to the fabric of human existence since the dawn of history." -- Container.
