Film re-creates wagon travel in the U.S.

Lake Tahoe Historical Society will present the film “In Pursuit Of A Dream” on Feb. 7 at 6:30pm at the Lodge at Camp Richardson.

The film shows 24 students and three teachers from across the United States in a cross country wagon trek as the “emigrate” from Wyoming to Oregon one recent summer. They dressed in period 1800’s attire, carried no modern devices, trudged alongside the wagons in sunshine and rain and experienced unbelievable challenges.

The event is free.
