Title: The Power Boys

Genre: Western / Drama / True Story

This is the true story of a cattleman turned miner and feud that led up to the largest man hunt in Arizona State history and the story of a man struggling to keep his family together, even against their own will.

In 1911, a series of tragic events led up to the death of Thomas Jefferson “Jeff” Power, Sr, his daughter, Ola May, his mother, Jane Power, and the life imprisonment of his two sons, John and Tom Jr.

It all started in 1897 with the death of  Jeff’s wife, leaving him a widower with four small children and their grandmother.  A single parent in the wild west.

The family moved around the frontier for years until finally coming toArizonain 1911.  It was time for the family to start over again.  Jeff and his family settled down in southernArizonaraising cattle. Right from the beginning there is a rivalry between the Power and Wootan families. Foreshadowing something more.

Early in the predawn of February 10, 1918, the bootlegging U.S. Marshall Frank Haynes, his deputy, and one of the Wootan clan come calling, but they only succeed in killing Jeff and sending the boys on the run.  So ends our tale and the largest man-hunt in Arizona history begins.
