Western • 4.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1961

In this short installment in the popular Western author's Sackett family saga, William Tell Sackett speaks of how he found gold, love, and danger in Texas. Rough-and-ready, unlettered, and possessing plenty of horse sense, the oldest of the Sackett boys is on a quest for a moral pathway for himself while he does what a man has to do to protect his claim, his sweetheart, and his life from a clan of vengeful claim jumpers. David Strathairn, a convincing frontiersman, plays Tell as the strong, silent type--à la Gary Cooper--so laid-back as to skirt the edges of flatness. Y.R.
