The film opens with the following written foreword: "When the Homesteaders settled in Oregon, they found a beautiful, lush country-a country that held promise for all. But clearing the land was a challenge, for the thick tree growth and the huge rocks that peppered the soil kept the homesteaders from plowing and herding successfully. The problem was particularly acute in the year 1870, when the country was still recovering from the effects of the Civil War." According to copyright records and reviews, The Homesteaders was released in sepia, but the viewed print was black and white.
