Summary, etc.:
Uprooted from their comfortable home in Pennsylvania, James and Kate Tanner, along with their sons Virgil and Andy (played by real-life brothers Ron and Clint Howard) journey to the wild country of 1890s Wyoming to become farmers. Soon, they come face-to-face with tornadoes, bears, and wolves. But through the hardships their love for each other endures, even when a local rancher sees the newcomers as "squatters" on his land, and will stop at nothing - including murder - to drive them out. THE WILD COUNTRY is a wondrous adventure full of true grit and courage that celebrates family togetherness and determination.
