Based on the life of rodeo cowboy, rancher, and oilman Kenny Wayne Harris.  Follow the fast track of Kenny's early life as a star high school athlete, his rodeo career, then his thrilling adventures as head of the iconic Harris Ranches, among the most famous pieces of property in the state: an original Republic of Texas 300,000 acre land grant gifted by Sam Houston to each of his six original Texas Rangers.  An early love that goes bad.  A later love that is true.  Two murder trials take their toll on Harris - all capped off by an unlikely savior from his past.
