Western stories and legends based, and filmed, in and around Death Valley, CA. One of the longest-running Western series, originating on radio in the 1930s. The continuing sponsor was "20 Mule Team" Borax, a product mined in Death Valley.
I was in the 9th grade when this show was on. Tony Young became my very first "heartthrob" :-) I cut out and saved every article I could find about him. In 2005 I was cleaning out a lot of junk from my house and found my Gunslinger Scrapbook with all the articles and pictures I had collected. I really loved that show and was heartbroken when it was canceled. I refused to watch any program that came on in that time-slot for a long time. At the time I was very much into any show that was a western. I also loved to read Louis LAmour westerns at that time. Several years after Gunslinger bit the dust I happened to see something on TV that had Tony Young in it and was glad to see that he had aged well :-).
