Taylor Sheridan—A Remarkable Talent
“Everybody has a talent; it’s just a matter of moving around until you’ve discovered what it is”
For two decades Taylor Sheridan struggled to be an established actor and failed. At age forty, he found his calling as a screenwriter and director. He attained success with four films that reflect his “frontier life.” He was born in the impoverished part of West Texas with little modern conveniences. He started herding cattle as a teenager facing harsh summers, freezing winters, and relentless rain in the fall. Sheridan also lived among Native Americans where he witnessed their struggles and hardships. Through films, the ranch boy from West Texas, was able to showcase an America few people knew about.
Here are four of his most noteworthy:

The best defense is to stay out of range.
