Torn between two different worlds, Jim Buchanan, the son of a Scottish immigrant and a Native American woman had it all -- a lucrative sports career and celebrity status. Yet, he sacrificed it all to return to his roots, to the land he knew and loved embarking on a new career in law enforcement. In fictional Cedar County, Montana, Sheriff Jim Buchanan, relying on sheer determination and a strong moral compass, blazes his own trail in what some still consider the most untamed country in the lower 48 states.
