Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] The mountain had been our home ever since the first Walton put his ax to a pine tree and built his cabin on a plateau near the summit. Since then, each Walton child had been instilled with a regard for the traditions of the land on which we lived. Ironically, it was I who violated those traditions and exposed our mountain to a danger unforseen, and literally unknown in our sheltered community.
