Jo Van Fleet plays a feisty old woman who runs her small property as a preservation sanctuary for the forest creatures. She's in a big conflict with her
neighbor John Crawford who is trying to get her declared incompetent so he
can grab her land. She has a champion in Lorne Greene but it's Judge Donald
Moffatt she has to make sure he sees her not as a crazy old bat.
This episode is dominated by Van Fleet in her performance. She made a career
of playing women much older than herself and this is a role to equal what she
did in East Of Eden and Wild River. She's nothing short of wonderful and
touching in this Bonanza story.
