Joe Cartwright and Anne Helm the school teacher in Virginia City have become an item and when you see her fall of Michael Landon's pinto horse when she tries to ride your heart skips a beat because you think sure enough fatality for a Cartwright involved woman. But all she does is break a leg and it lays her up for a spell. What to do for a school teacher now?
An offhanded remark about Landon teaching school and Lorne Greene thinks that might be a broadening experience for his youngest son. So it turns out to be.
Steve Cory and Kevin Coughlin are a pair of brothers who are just entering school in their teen years. This is so because their hog farmer father Morgan Woodward says that education isn't needed just to throw slop at hogs every morning. The role of convincing Woodward that education is not a bad thing falls to Little Joe. He proves worthy of the challenge though convincing Woodward isn't easy.
Ben Cartwright turns out to be right again, school teaching does prove to be a broadening experience for his son and this is a fine Bonanza story with a good moral to it.
