Retracing the steps of the 19th-century pioneers' journey across the American frontier, outdoorsman Mears goes on location across the West to reveal how rugged terrain and deadly hazards tested the travelers of one of history's largest human migrations.

Taking viewers across seemingly impassible mountains, sprawling grasslands, and arid deserts, Mears also partakes in pioneer experiences such as panning for gold, riding the range, and even eating bear meat. Eight 25-minute episodes cover a range of topics, including wagon trains, homesteaders and cowboys, the Plains Indians and the buffalo, Gold Rush boomtowns, bandits and lawlessness, and the desert Indians.
