Description

The West chronicles the remarkable history of one of the most extraordinary landscapes on earth from the times of earliest Native Americans, and continuing into the 20th Century.


The People (1500's -1806)
From the beginning, the West has been a land of myth. This series begins with a story of European explorers converging on the Native American world. Across two million square miles of spectacular landscape, the original Native American inhabitants linked their creation stories to majestic mountains, pristine rivers, searing deserts and silent forests. To the Europeans, the West was a wilderness to be conquered filled with boundless treasures, souls to save and new horizons to explore.

Empire Under The Trails (1806 -1848)
In the early 1800's, no one knew who would control the seemingly infinite spaces of The West. Other nations and other peoples still laid claim to much of it. Mountain men such as the legendary Joe Meek, found more adventure than profit as they scoured the uncharted Rockies for furs. Missionaries such as Narcissa Whitman left the safety of home to travel west in a self assured quest to save a race of people who never considered themselves lost.
