Follow the mid 1800's adventures of the Allen Family as they join a wagon train headed west on the epic Oregon Trail. Traveling over 2,000 miles in their oxen-driven "Prairie Schooners" through hazardous river crossings, treacherous weather, mountain passes, tragedy, disease, and devastating dust storms, the Allens symbolize the determination and trials of a typical family who braved the Oregon trek. Life lessons and historical details are woven into the narrative of everyday events on the trail in this five-part adventure. Also featured is the heroic story of courageous 1960's civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, who through non-violence and determination, fought racial segregation while helping African Americans register to vote. Character-building listening for the whole family!
