By the end of the Civil War jobs were a thing of luxury if you had one which paid money. The men returning from the war found their lives disrupted, families starving or dead. Then someone decided to drive cattle north to Kansas City or Sedalia Missouri. There was where the markets were for a country which had a need for beef. This is the story of one man who took an old Osage Indian for his word of "All ways help others and they will help you." Teaming up, with a man he found walking and looking for a job, they put together a herd of longhorns and headed north to market. Over the next years they had formed the WH ranch and in doing so had ended up with nineteen orphans from around the area. At times he did not know if he was in the cattle business or raising children. However along the way everyone on the ranch became a big family and the ranch grew through hardships and good times along the way.
