A homesteading family in 1867 Wyoming faces a heartrending crisis when the husband (William Shatner) is killed and his widow (Joanna Pettet) must decide whether to remain and keep struggling or to give up and take her son and daughter back East.Written by
March 10, 1867. The events of this day have been extraordinary, indeed, almost frightening. I had expected to live out the rest of my days here in Indiana. Here, where I was born, was married, and gave birth to my two children. But within the week, I will never again be able to call Huntingville my home.

Ham Shatner doing what he does best: hamming it up. It's actually comical watching how hard he tries to sound and act like he belongs in the Old West. Joanna Pettet is the only one who makes this worth watching (although I doubt that real pioneer women wore as much mascara as she does). Helen Hunt, in her film debut, plays her daughter and one of the oddest child actors I've ever seen on film plays Pettet's son. I kept hoping some Indians would come along and take him off. The gruff and gravelly-voiced David Janssen has a supporting role in which he mainly grumbles while sitting on a horse.
