A Hardy Breed, 25 April 2014
Author: bkoganbing from Buffalo, New York

Cliff Robertson stars in this Twilight Zone episode as the leader of a small Wagon Train, hardly like the big outfit that Ward Bond and John McIntire led on television. They're part of that hardy breed of men as host Rod Serling says that tamed the west.

What they are in the future New Mexico territory is hot, tired, dirty, and thirsty. In addition some are sick like Cliff Robertson's young son. At a time when they're at their lowest spirits Robertson takes a short walk from the Wagon Train over the top of a small hill and steps 114 years into the future.

Without going into any details that will spoil, let us say that in truck stop diner owners John Crawford and Evan Evans and Dr. Edward Platt, Robertson finds the help he needs and the courage to carry on.

An interesting concept that this Twilight Zone episode offers us.
