How The West Was Won
- 3 Seasons
The story is based on the family known as the Macahans in the series. Moving to the wild west country of Oregon after living in Virginia in the time period of 1865. During this time Mrs. Macahan works with her three children to build a large farmland property. She waits with her children Josh, Laura and Jessie for her husband to return. During this time her other child Luke who was in the civil war returns home to them, after hearing that their father has passed away. Unfortunately Luke is almost taken away by officers from the army, until the strong frontiersman uncle Zeb jumps in and prevents them from taking Luke. Luke finds himself with no other alternative but to leave the farmland area. Far away from the family hiding out in the community of Simonite. During this time Zeb is then forced to head out to the mountains to track down a friend. Needless to say his friend is headed for trouble fighting against the Indians. Not only that but the rest of the family back at the farm is struggling to keep their farm safe from Indian intruders.
