When they hear that cowboys who apply themselves can make a fortune herding scrub cattle, they make their way into central Florida to begin a new life. But they aren't expecting to battle the Florida elements which include hurricanes, insects, alligators, scrub fires, and the constant heat. The money is good, though, so they stick with it despite a few close calls with death.
Through the years, Jeremiah and Earl Ray have more than their share of adventures. Whether it's fending off a group of bloodthirsty panthers, interacting with the Seminole Indians, or dodging bullets, the two cowboys always look forward to whatever appears on the horizon. Even during their darkest nights and brightest days, the two cling to their old-fashioned values to see them through.
Drawing on a little known part of Florida's history, Crackers in the Scrub brings to life the spirit and personality of the scrub cowboys, and reveals their tremendous courage and strength.
