'Four Crude Dudes and the Land of Hope’ tell the story of how the lives of a thief, a bully, a cheat and a liar converge and negatively impact upon each other during the days of the ‘Californian Gold Rush’ in the lawless wild west of America; leaving the hero of the story, Farmer Hope, with all the wealth. It is a story that espouses the triumph of ‘Good’ over ‘Bad’ and ‘God’ over ‘Greed.’
