In the early 1920’s cowboy and dry-range farmer, Ralph Moody, found himself with mountainous debts through the collapse of the livestock market, and the dealings of a crooked partner. He faces the choice of declaring bankruptcy before he turns twenty, or working off the intimidating balance against him. His fortunes seem to be turning when a flash flood takes all he owns, and he is forced to auction off his farm and animals. Ralph never surrenders, but finds a way to turn tragedy into opportunity.
