'The Pioneers' follows four families from South Dakota who trade in all of their modern conveniences, to live a life typical of that in the 1800s.
The pioneers set out on their journey of discovery, finding the piece of land they aim to settle in for the next three months. However a slow goat causes conflict, as does a downed tree which is in their path, as night approaches. Then the wagon breaks down as well.
