  • After hearing John's tales, ever since they were born, the legend from it comes true, when Tip Harrison comes to Waltons Mountain.

    First things first. I despise Tip Harrison! He shot Reckless and then let him to die! I mean, seriously! And then Jonboy and John find Reckless by hearing him whimper! That's just evil! And everyone knows it's hard to watch a show if you totally hate someone in it. But, this episode was pretty good I guess... Who names their kid Tip? Nevermind, that was pretty stupid and random to ask :D(if your first name is 'Tip' then don't read this: TIP IS A WEIRD NAME! you were warned). I recamend this episode...How do you spell recamend anyway? if you do, then please send it to me, I really am too lazy to go to http://www.dictionary.com ~old shows finaticmoreless

    • Opening Narration: Usually each family has its own special folklore, stories and anecdotes polished smooth with the telling. The setting for most of our legends was Walton's Mountain, but one favored part of our folklore took place far from the mountain when my father had served overseas in what was then called the Great War. To us children my father's stories of the places he'd seen and the men he'd known were endlessly fascinating. And then one day a legend came to visit us.

    • Closing Narration: The gallant gesture made in the face of great danger, the flamboyant exploit that shocks and delights, these are the usual materials for building a legend, but as I was growing up I was privileged to watch the day by day growth of another kind of legend, fashioned out of long years of bone-tiring work, good humor in the face of daily hardship, and unfailing patience, understanding and love, the quiet legend of John Walton, my father.
