Filmed on location in the rugged Grand Teton National Park area of Wyoming, The Monroes revolved around 5 orphaned children aged 6 to 18, who fought to establish a homestead in the rugged Wyoming Territory of 1876 after their parents had drowned.

The bunch was made up of:  Clayt - age 18, and Kathy - age 16, who looked after 13-year-old twins Jeff and Fenn, 6-year-old Amy and a dog name Snow.

Helping them was the renegade Indian Dirty Jim, and their enemy was British cattle baron Major Mapoy who wanted their land. Jaxon was one of Mapoy's cowboys.
