Fourteen original instrumental tracks work together as a whole to tell the story of a group of wagon train pioneers heading west circa 1840. A lavish 12-page booklet features original stories presented as "diary entries," along with original artwork by Jack and Laurent Duriex to further immerse the listener in the experience.
A strong progressive rock influence with odd meters and adventerous sounds blends seamlessly with a highly melodic, folk-like approach into what could almost be described as "Progressive Americana."
