Set on a Montana ranch in the mid-1800s, You Are My Sunshine tells the story of Abraham Rockhammer, his children and his grandchildren.  Abraham left Ohio with his pioneer spirit in his head and his heart.  His piece of Montana did not come easy, but, was pristine until his new neighbor, young Henry Weebow, started to mine for ore on the opposite side of the sacred mountain Abraham called home.Ride down that road to the ranch, choose the right fork when you get to the Y, and enter the gate that Abraham Rockhammer built.  You will get caught up in a poignant story that sends you back 150 years and you won't want to return.
