The Gang Ranch—British Columbia’s sprawling and legendary million-acre cattle empire—at long last came under Canadian ownership in 1978. Judy Alsager, one of the owners, takes us on a sincere and moving journey of breathtaking scenic images through the tumultuous times that see the Ranch rise proudly from its previous comatose state to become a thriving, exciting operation once again. She shares with us the heartache and desperation of the Alsager family as a bizarre series of events brings the Gang Ranch toppling down without warning, thrusting the family into an alien labyrinth of legal and banking malfunctions. This is an honest account of what actually transpired to tear the Alsager family apart and how the Gang Ranch was wrested away from the family’s grasp, resulting in the tragic loss of one of Canada’s grandest and most historic assets.
