Release Date: 08 April 2011
The year is 1845 and three families join the Oregon Trail, a perilous trek across the Cascade Mountains led by experienced guide Stephen Meek. Solomon Tetherow and his wife Emily spearhead the train of wagons followed by Thomas Gately and his wife Millie, and William White, his wife Glory and their son Jimmy. Meek claims to know a shortcut and he leads the wagons into the desert, becoming lost in the endless sea of sand, dry rock and sage.
