Synopsis

It was in the mid 1800's that the Colonial Government was beginning to form in British Columbia. Cattlemen from south of the border were very much encouraged to trail their cattle herds to the province and further north to the gold fields. The few herds of local stock were rapidly dwindling as miners moved north in search of the yellow gold. Over twenty thousand miners arrived in the Caribou in two years. Behind the gold miners, came the pioneer family's, all eager to carve a living out of the province. Small cattle drives were formed from as far south as Burns, Baker, Bend, the Oregon Desert and Nevada.

"The Mighty Gang Ranch" spans 150 years from the owners and sale of the ranch. It also gets into the major controversy and alleged overgrazing by livestock along with the relocation and transplants of the California Bighorn Sheep from the Gang Ranch in B.C. to several States in the USA. Program's that have been a major successes.
