Unschooled homesteader Sayward Luckett (Elizabeth Montgomery) couldn't read her name if you showed it to her, yet she fell in love with and married agnostic, book-learned frontier lawyer Portius Wheeler (Hal Holbrook). Now it's time to make a life with him in wild, wooded 1790's Ohio Territory. There will be children, seven in all; joy and hardships aplenty; inconstancies of heart; and the enduring legacy of settling a new land. Based on Conrad Richter's trilogy of novels (he received a Pulitzer Prize for the third), this miniseries nominated for 6 Emmy Awards celebrates the pioneering spirit as it chronicles Sayward's heroic, unadorned life.
Elizabeth Montgomery and Hal Holbrook (earning two of those six Emmy nominations) lead a strong cast that includes Jane Seymour and W.H. Macy (his first screen credit).
