The Tree of Life
The McKindrick Ranch is owned by Mr. McKindrick. It is a very wealthy ranch, with the buildings and fences made of imported ash wood, highly polished and well maintained. Mr. McKindrick also has around 40 ranch hands patrolling his borders, supposedly to prevent attacks by Apache warriors. One of the ranch hands is Buster Maxim, who is in love with Holly Hooper, the daughter of a nearby farmer.
