The Culpepper Cattle Company ()

directed by
featuring Gary Grimes, Billy Green Bush, Luke Askew, Bo Hopkins, Geoffrey Lewis

Gary Grimes stars in this revisionist western as Ben Mockridge, a 16-year-old boy who has long dreamed of living the life of a cowboy. Wanting adventure, he persuades Frank Culpepper (Billy Green Bush) to take him along on a cattle drive, and Ben learns the hard way just how lonesome, exhausting, and violent the life of a cowhand can be. As one of the men on the drive puts it, "Being a cowboy is what you do when you can't do anything else." Hal Needham, who would later direct a string of successful films starring Burt Reynolds, can be spotted in a small role as Burgess, one of the cowboys. Mark Deming, Rovi Hide synopsis

Very Real

According to my Stepfather who was on cattle drives when he was 12 this was very much like the life in those days.
