Do you have what it takes to be a Buckaroo?

Creator(s): O'Keefe Ranch & Interior Heritage Society

The year is 1858. Gold has been discovered in the new Colony of British Columbia and thousands of gold seekers have flocked to the rugged territory. As a rancher in western Oregon, you watch with interest. The miners will have to be fed and you have hundreds of surplus cattle and there is a ready market in the goldfields of British Columbia. Unfortunately, getting the cattle there is a problem. There are mountains to cross, rivers to swim and hardships to endure. But, at the end of the trail, is the potential for huge profit. Do you have what it takes to be a BC buckaroo?
