The setting of the show in Wyoming Territory in the 1890's would have resulted in a very short run of episodes since Wyoming Territory ceased to exist after July 10, 1890 when the State of Wyoming was admitted to the Union. See more »
Good series, it's sad it's been kinda forgotten. It's easy to write it off as another 'Bonanza' knockoff-Big Valley, High Chapperell, for example, but it wasn't that, not at all. In one episode, you get to see Lee J Cobb, Richard Anderson, Harry Morgan, Arthur Hunnicutt and a host of other Very familiar character actors doing the 'Stagecoach' routine-while McClure, Drury and co weren't exactly chopped liver either.
It had heart, it was well acted and was on forever. I would watch this over Bonanza any day.
