Forge a path with the Walker family and their friends as they attempt to settle the new frontier west of the Appalachians. Blazing their way is family patriarch, Jeremiah, a scout who searches out the best trails through the forests, over the mountains, and across the rivers. Each night at the campfire circle, you'll learn of other adventurous pioneers who blazed the trail for Jesus and discover that you can be a trailblazer for Jesus too.
