Synopsis

A lusty frontier saga about a pioneer woman and her love for her family, the man she marries and the land on which she lives, dramatized from Conrad Richter's Pulitzer Prize-winning trilogy. Emmy Award nominations went to Elizabeth Montgomery (her tenth), Hal Holbrook and Jeanette Nolan for their acting, Michel Hugo for his cinematography, Fred Karlin for his music score and Bernard J. Small for his film editing. The drama's authenticity came in part from the unusual speech patterns and dialects adapted for the actors by former dancer Marge Champion who drew upon an apparent family heritage for dialogue realism.
