How The West Was Won: The Complete First Season
A sprawling epic of the Old West. A rousing action saga. A moving family chronicle. All describe How The West Was Won, the memorable series now making its long-awaited DVD debut. Based on the epic 1962 film of the same name, the show focuses on the Macahan clan; Zeb (Gunsmoke legend James Arness), a mountain man accustomed to the harsh realities of frontier life; his sister-in-law, Kate (Academy Award winner Eva Marie Saint), alone since her husband's death and struggling to maintain a home for her family; and Kate's eldest son, Luke (Bruce Boxleitner), pursued by the law for deserting the Union Army. Their stories play out against a realistic re-creation of the post-Civil War American West, in that lusty, hard-hitting period when laws were frequently broken and progress was charted by individual suffering and survival. Saddle up for one of the most thrilling journeys in television history.
