Prairie Fever with Kevin Sorbo, Lance Henriksen and Dominique Swain


Preston Biggs( Kevin Sorbo) a town sheriff intervening in a bank robbery shootout in the street as one outlaw held a woman in front of him as a shield; hoping to get away. The woman shouted ‘Shoot him, shoot him’ as the outlaw pushed her; the sheriff shot missing his target and killed the woman. The worst experience for the sheriff; the woman was his wife.


Two years later Preston Biggs is the town drunk because he blamed himself for his wife’s death. The sheriff gave him a job so he could earn money to pay for the property damages in the bar. He now had a get out of jail job. 

The job was to take three women with prairie fever from their town who came there as mail-order brides. He would travel by wagon with the three women to Carson City to the nearest train.


The worst one was Lettie (Jillian Armenante) whose cell was next to Preston’s before their journey. She tried to kill Preston through the bars. She hated all men because of the abuse she received from her husband---and she had scars to prove it. 

She tried to kill her husband---so she waited in jail until she boarded the wagon to Carson City. Lettie loved music and had her organ that she brought into the marriage with her. Her husband had threatened to destroy it and that is when Lettie tried to kill him.

The second traveler named Blue (Felicia Day) another mail-order bride who carried a Bible and quoted from it with her ‘Hell Fire and Damnations’ words spurred continuously talking. 


Her husband told Preston at first she was a sweet loving wife---but no longer so he was sending her to an asylum with her family’s blessings. Her husband later found out the reason she acted so strangely.

The Third one was Abigail (Dominique Swain) who screamed the sky was too big and would fall on the ground and cover her head. Later her actions became clear.

This is a good western movie with a story I am sure happened many times with mail-order brides. Love also began on this journey to make the movie more romantic. 


And, we learned about everyone traveling together---and to spice it up---a fourth woman whose named Olivia Thibodeaux (Jamie Ann Allman) joined them because she left her husband, Monte James (Lance Henriksen) who is a gambler and who is much older than Olivia.
