This short-lived 1960's series was a cross between Wagon Train & How The West Was Won (though not as good ...) . A band of pioneers trek westward from Kansas to settle in the frontier west. The series featured the great James Gammon, Strother Martin and the prolific western character actor Roy Roberts. George C. Scott also appears here!
This series is rarely seen today,but my recollection of it is clear. The show was average, with great casting but a fairly standard storyline. Fans of the interesting cast might want to check this one out, but the same plot was done much better by other series.
Recommended only for die-hard western fans .
