Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] Waltons Mountain meant many things to my family. It was a source of food, for we took game from its forests and fish from its streams. It was a refuge in time of trouble and a link with the history of our family's past. And once, it became the setting for a race that none of us would ever forget.
