The story of the Florida Crackers dates back to 1521, when Juan Ponce de Leon landed in what later became Florida and introduced the first cattle and horses into North America. Centuries later, settlers of mainly Celtic and British descent began moving into Florida and rounding up the Spanish cattle and horses. Descendants of these pioneering families are still working the land and raising the cattle that their families have owned for generations. 'Florida Crackers' has captured the story of these real-life modern cowboys: their history, their culture, and the uncertain future they face as they strive to preserve their way of life in a fast-paced modern world.
