It's 1919 and the U.S. Forest Service is busy at work in the remote wilderness of the West. For many—like the hardened Bill (Sam Elliott)—blasting rock and blazing trails has become a way of life. But for a 17-year-old hothead named Mac (Jerry O'Connell), there's much to learn. Under Bill's watchful eye, Mac is exposed to the harsh realities of the weather, the terrain and worst of all, the antics of his fellow foresters. Based on the works of Norman Maclean, this coming-of-age tale captures all the heart and soul of a determined young man in a wild, wild world.
