"The tragedy is examined an unambiguous and intelligent matter."
Children's Video Review Newsletter

"Despite differences in language and climate, Cowell has given us a family album. Here is our own North American history, the taming of the West, the destruction of native peoples, the heroism and hardship of settlers and the gambling of a whole wild land on the chance of supporting a population that the cities could not absorb."
