"Although dated (the version we have is the cheap $1 disc and is a horrible video transfer job), and filled with flaws, this film is a family treasure. The acting is not great but the overall story and photography are beautiful. It's about a poor farming family of nine that set out from Missouri, in 1843, to go to Oregon Territory and start a new life.
The perils they have along the way are well portrayed. This is based on a true story. What those children accomplished is nothing short of amazing.
**** 4 Stars...Highly recommended family viewing!"

"Great Historical piece that does not try to insert todays Politically correct views into the telling of their struggle."
