Things Will Be Better
An 1849 Journey on the Oregon Trail. It's 1849, Crispinus Fletcher has been orphaned. After being forced to move twice before in his life, hoping things will better each time, Cris must now leave his farm and, with his 12 year old sister, find positions on a wagon train heading west. Heavy rains turn the trail to a mire. The dread disease, cholera, stalks the western-bound travelers.
