DANIEL BOONE – A Place of 1000 Spirits - 1965

This is the 17th episode of the long running 1964-70 series about the life of American frontiersman and explorer, Daniel Boone. The lead is played by Fess Parker. Also in the mix are Albert Salmi, Ed Ames, Patricia Blair, Veronica Cartwright and Darby Hinton.

Fess Parker, Ed Ames Patricia Blair, Veronica Cartwright and Darby Hinton are several days out from Fort Bonnesborough. They are at a natural salt lick boiling up enough to last for the winter. They are interrupted by a man in a Redcoat uniform who stumbles out of the woods. The man, Macdonald Carey, is delirious and is raving about being chased by ghosts of his past.

The group make Carey comfortable and give him some food and water. This helps calm down the man. Several hours later, a group of Shawnee warriors come a calling. They tell Parker that they only want the Redcoat officer. Hand him over and Parker and group can leave. If they don't hand over the man, all will be killed.

There is a quick talk among the group and they decide to make a break for the woods as darkness falls. The Shawnee however are not fooled and block all but one exit from the clearing. This path soon leads to the burnt out remains of what was a Shawnee village.

Now Carey coughs up that it is the village, where 10 years before, he had led an attack that massacred all the women, children and most of the men. The surviving Shawnee had after him for revenge ever since. They had captured him several days before, and were returning him to the site to kill him. He had escaped from the Shawnee, then ran into Parker and his group.

The Shawnee surround the group. They again offer to let Parker and his family leave if they had over Carey. The stress and guilt of the slaughter he led years before, has been eating away at Carey's mind for years. He is at the end of his tether, mentally. He begins wailing about the ghosts that haunt him night and day. The Shawnee decide the best revenge is to let the man suffer with his own dreams. They let the party leave.

Claude Akins plays the leader of the Shawnee warriors. Former big screen man, George Sherman handles the direction reins in this one.
