knowledge (and surprise), I believe this is the only book ever
written about the television series, The Waltons.
Authored by Walton's creator, Earl Hamner, the first 64 pages
describe Earl Hamner's life, including his upbringing in Schuyler,
the production of the film Spencer's Mountain, his career as
a Los Angeles TV writer in the 1960s, the TV movie The
Homecoming, and the series The Waltons. The next
126 pages describe each of the 219 episodes of The Waltons
and include occasional comments from the cast, directors, writers,
and fans. The last 20 pages describe the Waltons Mountain Museum and
lists resources and cast members.
good book, but I wish Earl had spent more time describing his
upbringing in Schuyler and his family, which interests me, and less
time describing what actually happened in each episode. I'd
especially like to know how much truth there was behind each
episode. Also, there are a few typos. Nevertheless, it's
interesting and well-worth the price if you're a Waltons fan.
