Steven Kapp Perry: Cricket & Seagull: '17 Miracles' tells story of 1856 handcart pioneers
Most Latter-day Saints could tell you a fact or two about the handcart companies of 1856, but few could give you the names, the humorous incidents, the brutal facts and especially the innumerable miracles that accompanied their every step.
With the premiere of "17 Miracles" only weeks away, filmmaker T.C. Christensen sat down with one of the actresses and a producer of the movie to share some of these stories, and why he ended up retelling a story that has been told many times before.
That's this week on The Cricket and Seagull.
