SUMMARY: Continuing the story of Ben and Rosey O’ Rourke. In this sequel to ‘Keep Your Eyes on the Sun’, things seem normal at the Ponderosa ranch. Ben, Adam and Hoss are hard at work and Little Joe is in trouble. What Joe’s family cannot know is that his trouble will soon draw them into a war that will end only when the victor possesses an ancient Chinese stone that, unbeknownst to them, has come to the Ponderosa.
Rated PG-13 for typical western violence and bad guy brutality.
