Cowboy life is not for the weak of mind, body, or soul; the cowboys in Reckless are strong with grit and hard work; they demand respect, Checker Evan's is the first to demand respect from his ranch hands on him and his wife, Levi's, Montana ranch. When it comes to the love of his life, Levi, he has a slow hand and a soft heart. Checker was hesitant to agree on driving a herd of wild horses from Wyoming through Yellowstone National Park. Still, he learned quickly how determined and stubborn his new wife is and that she is hell-bent on keeping her promise to her young daughter, Stetson, at any cost.
Levi and the cowboys assemble at the Wyoming Bureau of Land Management in Cody and retrieved the wild horses to drive to her mother, Lauren's ranch close to the Wyoming entrance to Yellowstone Park. They plan to pasture the horses until ready for their final push through the park. As they navigate the horses through Rattlesnake Mountain in Wyoming, following the Shoshone River, tragedy strikes with one of their ranch hands, Jess, as his horse drags him over the rugged earth; can the cowboys save him, or has his fate been sealed by the runaway mare?
"Learning to forgive is hard even for a cowboy like me." ~ Wrangler McBride
