I saw this series many years ago when it was on TV and I thought it was great. While is seems dated now, I was no less delighted to see it once again. Many of the actors are favourites of mine and they really did a great job in the making of this series. It makes you realize the difficulties of the original settlers, the trials and hardships of families trying to make a better life. I truly enjoyed seeing this again.

Unschooled homesteader Sayward Luckett couldn't read her name if you showed it to her, yet she fell in love with and married agnostic, book-learned frontier lawyer Portius Wheeler. Now it's time to make a life with him in wild, wooded 1790s Ohio Territory.
There will be children, seven in all; joy and hardships aplenty; inconstancies of heart; and the enduring legacy of settling a new land. Based on Conrad Richter's trilogy of novels (he received a Pulitzer Prize for the third), this miniseries nominated for 6 Emmy Awards(r) celebrates the pioneering spirit as it chronicles Sayward's heroic, unadorned life. Elizabeth Montgomery and Hal Holbrook (earning two of those six Emmy nominations) lead a strong cast that includes Jane Seymour and W.H. Macy.
