In the late 1870s, Elijah Everitt and his son Charles leave Ohio for a harrowing adventure. Abandoning their Lake Erie fishing fleet and part of their family, they head west to start a new life. From Erie to the Mississippi River, Elijah and Charles join the endless stream of wagons and travel along the roads, but once they cross the Mississippi they are alone for the remainder of their trip to Colorado. Battling illness, injury, snow, and wind storms, they persist in their quest to build a new life.
