This is the story of author, rancher, conservationist and founder of the Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary, Dayton O. Hyde. A series of interviews with Dayton, his family and the volunteers at the sanctuary reveal Hyde's extraordinary life and vision, and convey the emotional healing that the sanctuary nurtures in them as well as in each and every horse that now runs free. The film also serves as an enduring record of tales from "a West that was and will never be again."
