In the mid-nineteenth century, Senator William J. Tadlock leads a group of settlers overland in a quest to start a new settlement in the Western United States. Tadlock is a highly principled and demanding taskmaster who is as hard on himself as he is on those who have joined his wagon train. He clashes with one of the new settlers, Lije Evans, who doesn’t quite appreciate Tadlock’s ways. Along the way, the families must face death and heartbreak and a sampling of frontier justice when one of them accidentally kills a young Indian boy.
A light meal will be available and Deane Tucker, PhD Chadron State College will facilitate discussion. The movie rated PG-13 and 122 minutes.
