    • Opening Narration: The quiet strength of Walton's Mountain always seemed to shelter our house from the rest of the world. In 1937 it was hard for our family and neighbors to believe that we could ever be touched by the trouble that was reaching out from Europe.

    • Closing Narration: My first experience at expressing an unpopular idea nearly turned into a disaster. Fortunately, my family was able to overcome the problems I had helped create for them. The troubles soon died down when people realized I was only trying to let them know that something was stirring in the world that even Walton's Mountain could not keep out of.
