"Filmed with warmth, a nice ear for dialogue, and a sense of the land and its people, this documentary illustrates the conflict between rural values and commercial needs. A sympathetic narrative, effective music, and attractive cinematography strengthens this appealing view of rural life that warns of the price that must be paid for intensive development."

"An excellent study of one segment of our lifestyle that is changing, not just in Florida, as urbanization claims more and more farm and ranch lands."
Landers Film Review

"The program defines a significant social issue and modern dilemma, yet manages to avoid ridiculing either the ranchers or the Disney or other corporate forces at work on the landscape. Pacing, excellent photography, and a uniquely Floridian flavor make this a positive and significant film."
