In our last show we traveled with the Pioneers from Winter Quarters along the Platte River to about Fort Kearney. In this episode 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. We begin Saturday May 1, 1847 in Central Nebraska.
