Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] Spring on Waltons Mountain was always a welcome and celebrated event. Everything that had been dormant during the winter came to life. My grandfather said it was a time of beginning, when every living thing was given the opportunity to renew itself. In the spring of 1940, when the world was on the brink of war, our lives were to change drastically.
