From the Foreword by Actor Denny Miller: "...EachWagon Tain show had twenty to thirty million people sitting around their "elelctric bonfires" - television sets. They'd bring their family and friends in to listen and watch a story without interruption from storms, stampedes, or hostile folks. That is what television means to storytellers. It gives them an opportunity to tell entertaining and fascinating stories to an unbelievably large audience.
Wagon Train was a Conestoga classroom - a prairie schooner-about our country's westward expansion, about people looking for a new life, a fresh start. It was also an anthology - a collection of short stories that were morality plays about rugged people that lived these stories.
