    Breathtaking photography, live re-enactments, illustrated maps and rare photographs make these award-winning historical adventures come to life and ones that will entertain and educate all age groups for many years to come.

    The Oregon Trail-

    The reasons for going... the hauntingly beautiful landscape... the rivers they followed and crossed... the joys and hardships... and the elation and the dissension as described in immigrants diaries... all come to life in this detailed account of America's longest and most famous pioneer trail.

    The Pony Express-

    Glossed over by all of the adventure and romance attached to it, most people don't realize the Pony Express lasted only 19 months. It was a grand gamble that eventually led to the bankruptcy of the three men who started it. Yet, during it's brief life span, it caught the attention of Americans, made a legend of the riders and provided a vital link between California and the Northern states at the onset of the Civil War.
