  • Indians believe their ancient burial ground is right under the Waltons barn.

    I liked this episode better than others who have contributed here. While the idea of the ancient burial ground being directly under the barn may be a bit far fetched, I was moved by the historical lessons about the forced "trail of tears" march, and the things Grandfather Joseph said about how people do not understand one another. I was also moved by Elizabeth's reaction to what the old man had to say. Here's a kid who had never heard or seen a "real Indian," who had only heard the one-sided schoolbook version of history. Her mind was opened to a new and greater understanding of human relations.moreless

    • Opening Narration: Most of us tend to be convinced of the rightness of our heritage, our traditions, our way of life, until some event happens that shakes our deepest beliefs to their foundations. On a day in 1939 two strangers came to our mountain. As a consequence of their visit we were to learn that others had roots there which reached deeper than our own.

    • Closing Narration: Who owns the land? Only the land knows. We mortals are passers-by and our lives are but a brief moment in the great span of time and space. We are born, we live out our lives, and most of us do the best we can with it. But the wind is forever, and the rivers flow forever to the sea, and all the seasons of the weathers will come and go after we are gone. But the earth endures, the earth is eternal.
