  • Mingo vs. Mingo

    A classic of the DANIEL BOONE series, a tour de force for Ed Ames, and a glimpse into the background of Boone's halfbreed friend - and a study in the testing of friendship and the meaning of honor. Mr. Ames does double duty in a dual role as Cara-Mingo, the Mingo we all know and love, and his evil half-brother, Tara-Mingo, a man he thought he'd put in his grave years before. The episode is full of tension, from the moment "Mingo", leading a Creek raiding party, shoots Yadkin. When Mingo refuses to explain, Daniel must hunt him down and find the answer. A double helping of Ed Ames is always good - but in a show of this calibre, it's wonderful.
