Pioneer Quest: A Year In The Real West, is a nine Episode television series that follows two couples as they assume the lives of early settlers to the West. In June they will arrive by horse-drawn cart at an empty piece of prairie. Within the year, using only the resources and tools of the 1870s, they will build a house, raise livestock, hunt, fish and grow crops. No running water. No electricity. No toilet paper or other modern conveniences. They must feed themselves, build shelter and endure the heat and cold. They must work together, sharing the hard work, the stress of failure and the joy of success, to persevere and prosper. Will they make it? What will their greatest challenge be?
