Explains that in the period between 1853 and 1890 the largest frontier region of the West was settled. Uses dramatized reenactments to trace this settlement of the area which extended westward from Iowa and Missouri to the mountain ranges of California and Oregon, showing the frontier being developed by the early miners and cattle ranchers, and later by the farmers and homesteaders.
