In 1972, The Waltons arrived in the homes of America in a time that by all accounts should have spelled failure for a show that exuded family values and wholesomeness. America was reeling from it's involvement in the Vietnam war, scandal in the Whitehouse and civil disobedience. Popular shows at the time were Prime-time talk and variety shows and 'All in the Family' was setting the tone for cutting edge TV. Despite that, 'The Waltons' premiered and quickly built an audience which lasted for 9 seasons, 6 movie specials and a place in our collective consciousness that has lasted for more than 40 years.
Collected here is a treasure trove of materials that details everything you could ever want to know about the show ... and then some. Come back for a second helping anytime, there's always room for another at the Walton's table.
