An excellent series taking place early 19th century Canadian West
2 June 2009 | by larkepSee all my reviews

I truly loved this series back in the late '80s when it was shown in syndication here in the US. The acting was superb,the show was totally believable and historically accurate. I remember thinking how fortunate I was to have been born in the 20th century; watching this series gave one a real sense of just how difficult were the lives of those who immigrated to Canada and the American west in the early 19th century. I fear people just aren't that tough and hardy anymore! I would love to own all the episodes on DVD if they ever become available and, failing that, would really enjoy watching episodes online if I could find them. Malcolm Stoddard was dream material for me back in the '80s. Heck, he still is!! What an amazing series this was; something Canada can still be proud of! They don't make series television like this anymore-not in this country, anyway!
