    Burt Wolf: Travels & Traditions [#1610H] On The Road In America, Part 1 "On the Road in America" is a 3-part mini-series that reports on the history of migrations within the United States - not how people got here, but how and why they moved around once they were here.
    In the first program, "Tails of Hope and Tears," Burt retraces the big relocations of the 19th century. Native Americans were relocated and their ancestral lands turned over to European settlers. In addition, the government was in the process of giving away valuable mineral claims. And finally, there was the discovery of gold.

Ever since, we've had Europe and the rest of the world to ourselves. duration 55:16   STEREO TVPG
