Based on a true story of America's early days as a nation, Calico and Tin Horns celebrates the victory of a group of farmers who band together to fight for land that has been promised to them for generations. Told in the voice of Hannah, the young daughter of one of the struggling farm families, this poignant story is not only a triumph of the working man over greedy landowners, but the victory of a brave young girl who saves her family and the land that will eventually become theirs. Beautiful oil paintings lend a sense of reality to this lovely retelling of a slice of American history.
