    • Opening Narration: The mountain had been our home ever since the first Walton put his axe to a pine tree and built his cabin on a plateau near the summit. Since then, each Walton child had been instilled with a regard for the traditions of the land on which we lived. Ironically, it was I who violated those traditions and exposed our mountain to a danger unforseen, and literally unknown, in our sheltered community.

    • Closing Narration: Although it had been spared, that piece of land was never again to belong to us. Mr. Shelby has never returned, but the flower lovers and bird watchers are waiting.
