Route 66: Legacy for Lucia

Making the journey all the way from her native Italy to the Pacific Northwest, Lucia Trapani has come on a holy mission. She has arrived to claim her inheritance to fund the purchase of a Madonna statue for her village church. Unfortunately, her "heritage" is a bogus promise bequeathed her years ago by a well-meaning but imaginative American soldier during World War II - who told Lucia he held the deed to the entire state of Oregon! It's up to Tod and Buz to protect the young woman from disillusionment and find a way for her to fulfill her quest.
