Only TV series based on a Patrick Dennis book
4 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Guestward Ho!" was a so-so sitcom about a young couple from the big city who move to the wilds of New Mexico to run a dude ranch. I saw the series at the time it aired, but since it only lasted one season and I was only 7 I remember little about it.

The one unique feature of this show was that it was based on a book, "co-written" by Patrick Dennis, of "Auntie Mame" fame. The book was supposedly non-fiction based on the lives of Bill and Barbara Hooton and co-written by Barbara, but believe me, every line of the book was pure Dennis. I am grateful to the show for having gotten me to eventually read it, every word of which was pure delight.
