Opening Narration: Looking back down the years to the Great Depression, I realize now that our family was much more fortunate than most. Many things were in short supply, but we had the advantage of being able to live on the bounty of the rich Virginia country. And even more important than the gifts of the land, our family remained intact. We stayed together under one roof and were never deprived of the comfort and closeness of our mother and father. Those feelings easily made up for what we often lacked in material things.
Closing Narration: The salesman was right about one thing—the wit and wisdom of the ages were contained in those books, and many of the voyages we took were no less memorable for having been enjoyed through the written word.
The German episode title is "Eine günstige Gelegenheit", meaning "A Good Opportunity".
