Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
See how the schemers, dreamers, and pitchmen enticed an unwitting public into a lawless landscape in this documentary detailing the fruits of America's Manifest Destiny though period accounts and visits to the few remaining settlements that still stand today. As the frontier shifted and new settlements began to dot the landscape, some faded into history while others flourished and grew. Follow the adventurous settlers out west by wagon train and railroad to experience just what a thrill it was to make your way through uncharted territory while forging a path into a future where anything seemed possible.
