Storyline

After the Chisholm family were cheated out of their land in Virginia, they packed up everything and headed west to the Oregon Territory to set up a new life in the 1840s. It took two years for the Chisholms, led by patriarch Hadley and matriarch Minerva, to reach Oregon, along the way dealing with Indians, strife, family disagreements and rough travel.

one of the best westerns i have ever seen.
14 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i have been trying to buy this film for a long time i wonder if the makers are going to re-release it.i hired it from a video rental shop in the 80s and the owner offered to sell it to me but i didn't accept his offer which i regret.it was a great favourite when it was on television.i enjoyed it so much that when i got it from the rental shop i hired it at least once a week for about 8 weeks.it was the best 3 hours entertainment i ever had.it had everything in it, adventure,sadness, happiness and all the components of a good western.the acting was excellent and the choice of cast was brilliant.i will still keep looking in case they do decide to re-release this film.
