Summary
In this fable of American folklore, set shortly after the turn of the century when the ending of the frontier collided with modern technology, young Daniel Hackett is working on the family farm in the west but dreams of automobiles, electricity and everything else progress may bring. Progress also brings land developers who want the family property. Daniel's father refuses to sell and soon Daniel finds himself on the run from a gunslinger to obtain the deed at any cost, and travels into the world of the mythic heroes of the west that his father had always told him stories about: the world of Pecos Bill, Paul Bunyon, John Henry, and Calamity Jane
