The Switzers have been ranching cattle in the Nebraska Sandhills for more than a century, but will they be able to keep ranching on their land? Cattle ranching has never been very lucrative, and it’s more challenging today than ever. To keep the family together, the Switzers take a gamble and start an ecotourism business. An unlikely ally, the Greater Prairie-Chicken, quickly becomes their star attraction. If the Switzers can manage their ranch to preserve the native grasslands, their prairie-chickens will thrive and attract nature lovers from far and wide – and ultimately keep the family on the land they love.
