"Manifest Destiny!" In the late 1700s to 1800s, the continental U.S. grew in size from only 13 colonies in the East to stretch across the continent to the Pacific Ocean. Join our players in a pioneer life adventure game, and follow events and historical figures during the westward expansion. Learn how the Louisiana Purchase and the Gold Rush encouraged the exploration and settlement of the U.S. frontier, and find out how individuals like Daniel Boone and the relationship between settlers and the Native American population impacted the growth of the nation. See how the development of transportation transformed the West and how the courage and determination of the pioneers laid the foundation for the country we live in today. Part of the multivolume Pioneer Life for Children DVD Series.

A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
