    An unvarnished look at the hard road that a group of women settlers have to face on a wagon train journey to California. Nothing is glamorized and the cost of the trip is honestly depicted as heavy with human lives. As with real life even in tough times there are humorous incidents that happen and they enrich the story and the film. A unique film with excellent direction. Hope Emerson stands out as a no nonsense, plain spoken traveler but all the performances are very good.

    This was a pretty good western movie. Interesting story of how a group of women trek west to find their mates when a town full of men request for women to marry. The endurance, and courage what they went through during the wild west. A must see.
