In our last show we traveled with the Pioneers from Winter Quarters along the Platte River to about Fort Kearney. And now we continue. The trail is beginning the climb to Wyoming. Within a short time the Pioneers would reach the edge of the American frontier—the Great American Desert as it was called, and would come in sight of one of the great wonders of the Plains—the buffalo. This episode features the scholarship of Ronald Barney, Mel Bashore, Richard Bennett, and Brian Hill.
