Storyline

While Alexander McKeag and Clay Basket decide to make a life for themselves, following the death of Pasquinel, with McKeag taking the young daughter as his own, across the country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 1845, a young Mennonite man named Levi Zendt dreams of going west also. He and his new bride, Elly, get as far as St. Louis where they meet Oliver Seccombe from London and Lisette, now married to Captain Mercy. A mountain man, Samuel Purchas, is offering to protect them on their journey and warns them of the Pasquinel brothers. They meet McKeag, Clay Basket, and their daughter Lucinda at the store they run. When Captain Mercy hears the name McKeag, he introduces himself as the husband of the daughter of his old partner, Pasquinel. The McKeags and the Zendts decide to become partner sin a new store, near where they used to do their trapping. But nature interferes and Levi goes off to McKeag's old cabin, in sorrow.
