Storyline

Native American and European cultures collide in the great and ancient forest. First come surveyors and mapmakers, then hunters and cabin builders. The vast differences between the two ways of life come to a climax when gold is discovered in 1829 on Cherokee lands in the Georgia hills, resulting in the removal of the region's first peoples. We see a new inhabitant, the European pioneer, carving out a life on the Appalachian frontier, coming to terms with the wilderness, creating a uniquely mountain way of life. Written by Ross Spears
