Storyline

Thomas Linthorne is a farmer, who, with his bride, Kate, settles a parcel of untilled Midwestern farmland in 1866. Linthorne is a dynamic and driven man who eventually becomes a pillar of the close-knit community. But there are trials and tribulations that eventually plague his dreams of the perfect life he has tried to create for his family. Over the span of fifty years, the Linthorne family will weather more than their share of hardship that affects each of them in dramatic ways. The Linthorne saga, set against the daily rituals and chores of life on the land, reveals the determination, strength and indomitable spirit of the families who settled America.

An honest realistic slice of life, truth and consequences, presented with excellence
3 February 2003 | by (Mobile Alabama) – See all my reviews

Great acting/actors, shows with honest reality the results of choices people make, not sugar coated. Not a happily ever after movie, but does have enough turn-out-right results to keep it from being a depressing movie. It was moving, and thought provoking. It was an honest look at lives, but also was very real entertainment. Was presented as 4 hours straight, but held us right to our chairs. Very well done, highest rating.
