sister orphans. When the vessel reaches Halifax, the Tanners jump ship
and set out to find their relatives who had arrived earlier. On the way,
the youngsters meet a mysterious gentleman named Adam Cardston and a
woodsman named Kit who join the Tanners on the trail west.

Background:

occasional ani-mal (such as a wolf and bear from Hollywood and an
