An unsentimental elegy to the American West, "Sweetgrass" follows the last modern-day cowboys to lead their flocks of sheep up into Montana's breathtaking and often dangerous Absaroka-Beartooth mountains for summer pasture. This astonishingly beautiful film reveals a world in which nature and culture, animals and humans, vulnerability and violence are all intimately meshed.

GrandFather hired hand in 1915 sheep tending on Crazy Peak

By Todd H.

Comments about PBS Sweetgrass DVD:

Don't know all the details anymore. My Father is 90 and remembers less every day. But it was well known my Grandfather Hjalmer tended sheep on Crazy Peak/Big Timber/Sweet Grass County about 1915. His brothers were going off to WW1 and both lost their lives. Hjalmer (his brothers) had been born in ND Griggs county in an actual Sod Hut in 1896. Worked in Montana in his late teens and married/farmed in ND 20's- 60's. My Grandparents moved in 1960's to Montana and both are buried in Plains MT. This PBS special brings back so many lost family memories.

A wonderful documentary

By MAB

from Georgia

Comments about PBS Sweetgrass DVD:

If you want to see how hard it is to be a cowboy view this DVD of Sweetgrass in Montana. This is a life that most of us could not live - it's hard work!
Montana is beautiful, but this DVD shows us all another side of life - every child should view this wonderful story.

Profound look at a disappearing world

By K. Duggan

from Columbia, SC

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Sweetgrass DVD:

This was a most profound film of the disappearing shepherds and their life. Their lives have always been hidden by the glitz and brass of today's American Idol, etc. Superb documentary.
