Tom Bodett, familiar to many for his work on National Public Radio and Public Television, hosts this fascinating series on the trails that extended America's frontiers. Follow in the footsteps and wagon ruts of rugged pioneers, dauntless homesteaders, reclusive mountain men, and stop-at-nothing gold hunters as they explored, settled, and worked the new land.


Before stern-wheeled steamboats, river-boat-men relied on the Mississippi's mighty current to propel their flat-bottomed boats to New Orleans. The same strong currents made up-river travel impossible, so they walked or rode back to Natchez along the River Road.

Tom revisits the favorite New Orleans vice dens of the rowdy boatmen, and tramps through the alligator-infested swamps crossed by the River Road. Along the way, he stops at gracious ante-bellum mansions, old plantations, and the home of John J. Audubon, the famous painter of America's birds.


The Natchez Trace was the second leg of the riverboat-men's journey home to Nashville. Tom tells the stories of the infamous land pirates who preyed on unwary travelers, and the mysterious death of Meriwether Lewis at Grinder's Stand. He also visits Cypress Swamp, Indian burial mounds, the Civil War battleground at Franklin Tennessee, and Belle Meade Plantation at trail's end in Nashville.
