A good series whose trail ended too soon .......
7 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This ambitious series starring the great Rod Taylor was unique and ambitious, but unfortunately was produced at a bad time for the genre.....

Having elements of Wagon Train, mixed with a little of Little House on the Prairie, this finely cast series was interesting and action-filled. Rod Taylor was the rugged, dependable lead and the scripts were well-suited to this era of television.

It is sad that Westerns were on the endangered list around this time ---this one was very good and had great potential.It bit the dust way too soon .
