Clara Maher and her mother are traveling across the country by train. When a snowstorm buries the tracks, a fellow passenger invites Clara and Mama to a special Thanksgiving feast. But Clara has a sneaking suspicion that the fun-loving "old cowhands" hosting the delicious banquet are really Butch Cassidy and his gang! Based on a real Thanksgiving feast held in Utah in the 1890s, An Outlaw Thanksgiving
delivers all the fun and adventure of the Old West, where hospitality can be found in the most unlikely places!
