Goofs

About twenty minutes from the beginning, we see a chart of Paul Garrett's family tree when he shows it to Lew Vernor. The genealogy is copied intact from the same scene in the novel, and so it conflicts with some of the revised and streamlined events in the miniseries. Some examples: the chart shows Jim Lloyd dying in 1924, while in the miniseries he was still alive in 1933. The miniseries has Lloyd's daughter Nancy (mentioned but never seen) married to Beeley Garrett, but the chart shows her married to Paul Mercy. And the book's family tree contained an error which was copied to what is seen here; it lists Prudence Wolf and Pale Star Zendt as mother and daughter but gives them the highly unlikely birth years of 1866 and 1874 respectively.

Quotes

Paul Garrett: The earth isn't something you take from without ever thinking about giving back. The earth is something you protect every day of the year. A river is something you defend every inch of its course. We have to look to the past and get back to some basic principles if there's going to be any future worth having.
