Ellen Myrick's narration is spot-on in this rollicking story of pioneer times. The Full Cast Family delivers all the emotions of families struggling to build a new life in a new land. They arrive in Florence to stake claims at the start of the 1889 Oklahoma Land Rush, discovering that it is up to them to create the community that currently is just a dream in the dust. Hardships arise when the train bypasses Florence because the settlers won't sell their claims to the railroad. Hilarity ensues as various plans are hatched to force the train to stop. Hope wins out when success comes in a satisfying ending in which all sides win. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
