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.Written by

I saw this movie as a copy my mother-in-law made off of TV. I saw it in 1985 I think it was. I loved it because it was about traveling west and a wonderful family.I loved the music in it. It is a very long movie, a mini series. It is fun to watch as a family. We watch it together as a family about once a year.My children love it too. It does have some swearing but not too bad. I think this movie draws our family closer together. My mother-in-law gave us the video she made and we recorded it again a few years ago, and now that copy is going bad too.I wish I could get another copy of this movie but it is not sold any where.I am going to try to record it again but it is very damaged.Iwould love to buy this movie if it is available at all any where.Any body that loves family movies especially about traveling west will thoroughly enjoy "The Chisholms".
