Timeless Values from America’s Favorite Family
In the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, during the Great Depression, the Walton family finds encouragement, strength, and blessing in the ebb and flow of everyday life on Walton’s Mountain.
Each episode, narrated by series creator Earl Hamner as the older, wiser voice of John-Boy, is a nostalgic look back through the eyes of the young, aspiring novelist. Each story, taken from the pages of John-Boy’s journal, opens a window into the soul of a family tested and refined through adversity and disappointment.
Each season traces the experiences of John-Boy and his siblings as they face head on, with the support and love of family, the challenges of growing up: school, courtship, marriage, employment, birth, aging, illness and death.
Zebulon “Zeb” Tyler and Esther Walton guide and encourage John and Olivia Walton as they raise seven children during some of the most difficult times in the history of our nation and world.
Along the way Walton’s Mountain welcomes, sustains, and is enriched by a handful of colorful townsfolk, including: the Baldwin Sisters; General Mercantile owners Ike and Cora Beth Godsey (a distant Walton cousin); Sheriff “Ep” Bridges; Verdie Foster; and Yancy Tucker (a chicken thief and handyman with big plans but little motivation).
Starring Richard Thomas as John-Boy, Ralph Waite, Michael Learned, Will Geer and Ellen Corby.
