Climb the mountain, search for God
1 June 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Both Hoss and Little Joe witness a terrible freak accident where Simon Scott is shot with his own weapon. As he clings to life little Clint Howard listens intently to hired hand Rudolfo Acosta tell him that God lives up high and one should seek him out in prayer.

But Howard takes his meaning literally and runs off to the high country looking for God. And when he finds big Leif Erickson with a beard like an Old Testament prophet, who's to tell him this isn't God?

But Erickson is far from God, in fact he's a long wanted fugitive that was presumed dead. He's a most dangerous and cynical man.

Bonanza regulars take a back seat to the guest stars in this episode. Erickson and Howard are something special together. And it's not often you see Rudolfo Acosta who is usually very bad Indians or Mexicans play a good guy. It's a nice story about a child's faith.
