Set in 1876 in the splendour of British Columbia and the mountains of Utah, this is the story of Holly and Jason Smith , two orphaned children stranded in the wilderness after their grandfather's death. Tenaciously they decide to trek westward to claim the only thing left to their name - a plot of land in the State of Oregon.

On tours of Australia, New Zealand and Canada and at engagements here at home she captivated millions. Narrator
