Abstract:

A story of man versus nature in all of its vicissitudes notably on the "hurricane deck" of a bronco, with the outcome highly uncertain for both man and beast; of blizzards which could snuff out lives in a matter hours, as indeed one did during an elk hunt in familiar territory; of indomitable courage; of hardships and hazards, repeated year after year, but never quite to the breaking point.
