He Packed No Star As He Wandered Far....Johnny Yuma
28 February 2002 | by (Stony Brook, NY) – See all my reviews

One of the best Western series of all time. Johnny Yuma, The Rebel took no grief from anybody and was quick to help the underdog defeat injustice. I personally like the on going feature of Johnny's writing in his journal of his travels and people he meet along the way. I am proud to have all 76 episodes in my VHS collection.
