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.

Great Look at life in 1866
12 November 2004 | by (Tomah, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie and I have to say that it was a wonderful look at life in the 1860's. I have seen very many movies that deal with the life and times of people from that time period and I have to say that this movie makes you really feel what the characters are going through. It was a very touching movie. It even caught my husbands attention and he enjoyed it almost as much as I did.

This is one of those movies that are sure to touch anyones heart. You should be ready with a box of tissue as it can get pretty emotional at times. This is one movie that does not shirk away from showing life the way it really is not the typical Hollywood type of look.
