Based on the book by Arlette Thomas-Fletcher, who also directed the movie, The Lonesome Trail is all about Mike McCray, a cattle baron trying to keep new homesteaders out of his mining town and Carlson, the preacher who rescues them with his Bible instead of a gun. But when the ruthless McCray attacks again, even Carlson’s family members may not stay on his side.
If you’re in the mood for a faith-based western — instead of the lawless Italian ones that are often on this site — The Lonesome Trail is for you.
Thomas-Fletcher is the first African American, woman to write, produce, direct and executive produce a western movie. She fell in love with horses and westerns when she grew up around farming, horses and watching western movies and television shows with her father.
