Wyoming, 1890. James Averill is the Sherriff of Johnson County, a county largely inhabited by foreign immigrants. The wealthy cattle owners view the immigrant farmers as a nuisance and hindrance to them enlarging their own land. The cattlemen's association, the Wyoming Stock Growers Association, effectively declares war on the immigrant farmers, and gets the state government's blessing. They assemble an army of guns-for-hire, and, backed by the U.S. Cavalry, set out to rid the state of the immigrants. James Averill's heart is with the immigrants, but he is not sure they have a chance of winning the inevitable war

Long, self-indulgent, controversial, and bloody.  STILL one of my favorite Westerns!  THANK YOU!

Having said that, it in no way realistically portrays the Wyoming Range War, despite the use of many real personages who were involved.  For example, Wyoming is STILL not exactly teeming with Bulgarians and Romanians, despite the inferences of the film.  The range war, as most range wars in the American West, was a dispute between usage of land resources-farming v. grazing, and had exactly NOTHING to do with xenophobia and immigrant "rights."
