The Quieting West

This is the story of two cowboys, Billy Colter and Thomas Andrew Benton, out of work in the rapidly changing world of the early 1900’s. They find jobs in Arizona with a renegade group of silent film makers, and are soon lured to a land of great enchantment and seduction – Hollywood!

It is a story of truth, fiction, and the disillusionment between the two; a story woven of humor, romance, and tragedy.
