    • Opening Narration: Of all the people whose lives touched ours on Walton's Mountain, my sister Erin remembers most vividly a young forestry student who visited us briefly in the summer of 1936. He was her first love. In the spring of 1937, with the blossoming of the dogwood, Chad Marshall returned.

    • Closing Narration: Erin came home and finished high school and spent most of her free time helping Chad build his cabin. And a fine cabin it was, built with careful loving hands and sitting proud on the land with the front porch facing the mountain.
