Educational! Entertaining! Exciting!
Follow the mid 1800's adventures of the Allen Family (parents Joshua and Sarah, big brother Abel, sisters Marijane and Abby, little sister Faith, and Grandpa Allen) as they join a wagon train headed west on the epic Oregon Trail. Traveling over 2,000 miles in their oxen-driven "Prairie Schooners" (smaller, sturdy covered wagons) 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 5-part adventure.
Also featured is the heroic story of courageous 1960s civil rights activist Fannie Lou Hamer, who worked through non-violence and determination, fighting racial segregation and helping African Americans register to vote.
