Watch the 2 disc Last American Cowboy DVD set for an insightful portrayal of a dying breed. Once the hallmark of the American way of life, cowboys are rapidly disappearing from the country’s map, and the few who remain lead lives full of challenges and strenuous labor. In the Last American Cowboy videos, you get to follow them on their lonely but adventurous path off the beaten track.

The Last American Cowboy DVD set is set in the breathtaking wilderness of Montana, where every Last American Cowboy battles each day to protect their legacy while providing for their future. Join three ranching families on their eight-month-long struggle to nurture thousands of calves from birth until the end of the season and their one payday of the year. Watch the Last American Cowboy videos as they wrestle with blizzards, disease, fires and death. Success hinges on hard work, loyalty, grit and determination. It’s clear from the Last American Cowboy Series DVD set that failure could put an end to their ranch and to a tradition sewn into the fabric of every American. These could be the final days of the Last American Cowboy.

Buy the Last American Cowboy DVD set, and see the hardworking cowboys of Montana fighting to keep up a traditional way of life in a modern world.

1. New Beginnings: At the start of Montana's calving season, three families brace for the hard work, stress and pressure of their eight-month-long struggle to raise herds of new-born cattle. Whether it's on horseback, in a helicopter or all alone, each ranch fights to shepherd new calves into the world and keep them alive as the long, brutal winter seeks to bring the season to an end before it can begin. Life, death, tradition and legacy all come into play as the cowboys are driven to exhaustion protecting our past and their future.

2. A Bitter Storm: Three Montana ranching families, consumed with bringing thousands of new calves into the world, get word of an approaching blizzard. Faced with the harsh reality that their animals could freeze to death in the wilderness, the already exhausted cowboys are thrown into a frenzy as everyonescrambles to protect the calves already born while new ones keep coming. Fear and anxiety bring tensions to a fever pitch. Failure means calving season could get buried by the snow along with the ranches as the legacy of the American Cowboy faces its greatest peril.

3. Hard Lessons: As calving season in Montana approaches its end, the pressure on all three ranching families intensifies when new obstacles arise to make life even tougher. Disease, hay shortages, and financial hardship force the cowboys to make difficult choices that impact not only their season, but the future of their ranches and the heritage they all strive to preserve. The resulting tension puts a strain on relationships and shines a light on the everyday challenges of balancing work and family.

    I watched this entire season on Netflix then the show was removed. I loved the show so much that I decided to purchase it to enjoy it for years to come. I don't regret this purchase one bit. If you have someone in your life that loves the western/frontier lifestyle this film is the one for them.

              Just found this show on Netflix and was soooo sad to find out this is the only season! Being a rancher's wife I could totally relate to this and was decent enough my kids can watch it too. Plus amazing footage of MT beauty which is my home state! Wish they would bring it back and would be interesting if they moved to a diff. state each season.

              This series shows what it takes to get food on the table for the rest of America. These men and women do amazing work and have such a passion for what they do. Being a real cowboy is one of the hardest most rewarding jobs. This series is perfect for everyone. It shows people who may never have the opportunity to see otherwise what goes into raising these animals and what love and dedication it takes. It gives all of us who live this life something we can relate to on TV. Love it and want to see more of it.

                      The Last American Cowboy gives a realistic and informative view of a romantic life that requires hard work, committment and determination. I have watched the shows and now the DVD several times and again with friends and family members. It is absolutely enjoyable and once you view it, you will view the whole DVD in one setting. It is just captivating and the best real TV show.

                                  This was entertaining from the first episode till the last. We only hope there will be more to come whether it is a continuation of these three ranches or new ranches. It gave us a window into the lives these hard working cowboys live. It definitely makes us want to visit Montana.

                                    We can watch this over and over and never tire of it! It's 'true' reality without all the drama that the other 'reality tv' shows give. Best of all, it is an inspirational family-friendly learning tool (showing that everyone in America can succeed with hard work and determination)!! Its a true, responsible account of the men and women who work to feed this nation, economically and physically. Moreover, it spotlights the determination and ingenuity that has made this the greatest nation on earth.

                                      I loved it, what a great show. The landscape and the scenes are just incredible and the families are all such good people. You want all of them to succeed.

                                        A cowboys life is very hard. The peopLe who run the ranching business work 7 days a week with no time off.
