Josh McBride is a simple sheepherder in 1896 Montana who wants to settle down and start a family. Though he fears no woman will want him because of his occupation, he has his sights set on Juliana Brady. Juliana is smitten with Josh as well, and she doesn't mind his job. But she does mind that he's thinking about going into the mining business, because that's what took her father away from her. Which will they choose, wealth or lasting love?
