This thrilling adventure back in time to the pioneering days of wagon trains uses real objects from the past in close-up to bring the period fully alive. Discover how a typical family from Indiana traveling to Oregon in a covered wagon really lived: how they dressed; what they ate; what they saw; how they survived the hazardous journey. Chronicles a day in the life of the Larkin family, from breakfast cooked over a campfire, until the first watch takes up duties for the night.
