"Lee has illuminated a little known facet of the Old West, Pacific Rim style", – San Francisco Examiner.

This award winning feature documentary film redefines our childhood notions of cowboys and indians and the Great American West. In this beautifully crafted movie,  Cowboys are the Indians. Hawaii's Paniolo preceded the American Cowboy but their story remains virtually unheralded in frontier history. The film is a tribute to the men and women who learned much of their riding, roping, and saddle making from the great vaqueros of Alta California.  Rare footage, clips of "shipping cattle" in the 1920s, Will Rogers with paniolo, Willie Nelson and cowboy songsters Kindy Sproat, and Grammy winning composer, Michael Martin Murphey.  Chicago FIlm Festival (Best Doc - History and Doc Screenplay), CINE Golden Eagle, highest award (Kahili Award) from the state of Hawaii visitor industry, among other national awards.  Color, TRT 58:30, english.
