Let’s get larger than life!  When the biggest herd of cattle west of the Mississippi disappears during the worst drought in history, it’s weird.  But when that herd transforms into ghosts, leveling everything in its path...well, now we’re into Pecos Bill tall-tell country.  Young Missy Cougar-Wildcat has always wished she could live an adventure as big as her home state, and when the roughest, rowdiest cowboy of all enter her world, she quickly finds herself up to her braids in a brand new hoot-n-holler legend packed with action, laughs.. .and the worlds largest prairie dog.
