My Oregon Trail

My Oregon Trail
In ?My Oregon Trail,? writer and filmmaker S?ndor Lau walks 2,000 miles through rattlesnakes, dysentery and high-velocity lead poisoning, from Independence, Missouri to the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Dodging buffalo chips and prairie trout, he meets modern-day pioneers, mountain men and Indian tribes living Western history in new ways. Learning from the Sweetwater River, Wind River Range and Columbia Gorge; American bison, sandhill cranes and Chinook salmon, S?ndor discovers the center of the universe in the middle of nowhere.

Think of it as the love child of Woody Allen, Ken Burns and Ira Glass. This is a living history documentary?no old photographs or black and white film. Hand-drawn animation by Corrie Francis Parks brings historic characters and landscapes to life. The story of the past is written in the personalities of the present?spiritual descendents of emigrants and tribes of the Trail who become S?ndor?s guides on the journey of half a million lifetimes.
