Cowboys in America

An older man, in cowboy hat, plaid shirt and down vest, stands in a vast prairie looking into the distance. Text reads:
Each week, 250 farms and ranches go out of business in the United States. 

Will Vernon Sager’s ranch be next? 

Follow more than two decades in the life of Porcupine, South Dakota’s last cowboy as he and his family struggle to preserve a vanishing way of life.
