Each well-crafted episode focused on a personal story of courage and perseverance of not just the main cast, but of the westward-bound emigrants as they made the perilous journey from the banks of the Mississippi to California’s Pacific shores. In the face of great odds, their uplifting, heart-warming, and at times heart-breaking stories tell the tale of how the west was truly won. They were hard-working people, determined and driven by the promise of rich fertile land and the freedom and prosperity that it would bring. But to get there they would have to make the hardest trip of their lives and to succeed they would need strong, knowledgeable people to led the way.
