As the train nears Sacramento it prepares to disband. The wagon train has survived births, deaths, marriages, and seven Indian attacks. Many friends and rivalries have been created. The families are from different cultures and backgrounds but they have meshed to make it this far but there are always last minute issues that crop up such as Heather Browne who needs a C-section but the only doctor is afraid to perform it and an old dying man who wants Chris to ensure his last wishes are followed. Lastly, the crew is waiting for their pay so they can celebrate but are not anxious to sign up for another year.
