I didn't want the story to end

Great story! 3 generations of hard working Americans struggling to survive against the pre-civil war, post civil war, and post WWI challenges of life. Experience the toughness of the American river boat life during the Civil war. Experience the hard life of the cowboy, post civil war. Experience the tough struggle of Homesteader's as influenced by harsh weather, poverty, physical toughness, inflexible family values, unimaginable courage and religious fortitude. Enjoy the early American spirit that loved the fruit of the simple life: fresh air, a good roof over your head, a good meal on a regular basis and a loyal partner to build a family during a tough frontier time in American history. Lot's of action.
