Elkhorn Season 1 Episode 8

When raging wildfires threaten to consume Elkhorn Ranch, Theodore Roosevelt’s men take quick action to avoid catastrophe, but many cattle perish in the flames. Backed into a financial corner, Roosevelt decides to sell some of his remaining stock to the town’s founder, the Marquis de Morés, before the fall roundup. When the Marquis attempts to take advantage of the situation by making a low offer on Roosevelt’s herd, a prideful Roosevelt walks away from the deal. Soon, other ranchers follow Roosevelt’s lead, and the Marquis retaliates by closing his businesses in town, igniting violence between the area’s ranchers and businessmen. To restore order, the town decides to form a cattlemen’s association. With the ranchers poised to vote for the association’s leader, Roosevelt must decide if he’s truly finished with politics.
