I got caught up in this series just last night. After seeing previews I set my DVR to record it and I got lucky as the network was doing a marathon of the show. After the first two episodes I had to call it quits and get some sleep but if I had the next day off I think I would have watched another. It was that good.
The hardships that those original settlers endured had to be incredible. Some 180 years later we should still be in awe of their sacrifice and their journey. Traveling some 3,000 miles on wooden/steel rimmed wheels just gives me a cold shudder. How could they do it?
Great movie..... let it take you back in time and relive what your ancestors wwent through.
