Rated: PG-13 for adult situations and innuendo, torture, and typical Western violence and brutality
SUMMARY: A WHN for The Hopefuls, this is a scene in which Hoss and Adam talk about an incident in Placerville. The actions Adam took there were because, although Regina was gone, her effect on him was still being felt.
SUMMARY: Adam does things for a reason. When he takes on corruption in San Francisco, he may find he has tackled too much for not a good enough reason, but his brothers get involved too. However one of them may not survive the fight to take down a corrupt villain.
SUMMARY: Delayed on a trip home from Sacramento to the point that his family searched for him, Adam suddenly appears on the Ponderosa but wounded and wearing clothing clearly not his. Joe is the one to find him but has no answers only questions for the unconscious man. A quest for answers will lead to a variety of trouble for family members.
Summary: The ending of the pilot has always bothered me. Would Alphaeus Troy and the mine owners really have given up that easily? What if the fight in China town had ended differently and Little Joe never made that dinner date with Lotta Crabtree…?
Summary: Three years ago Adam left the Ponderosa for parts unknown, and now Ben finally gets the news he has been praying for – his firstborn is coming home. However, an unexpected reunion in Stockton isn’t the only surprise fate has in store for the Cartwrights. (A Bonanza/Big Valley crossover story and sequel to More Than a Memory)
SUMMARY: The Cartwright brothers do not resemble each other. Many have remarked upon that, but there is a good reason for them looking so different from each other–they had different mothers and more. However, they are still brothers because there is something more important than who is present at your birth. The family learns to accept that principle.
