| Good show. His best performance
I have seen Denver Pyle as Galen Clark and it gave me a new respect for the man. I taped it, and have shown it to others. I believe it was based on a true story and life of a man who wanted to protect our forests working with the well known John Muir. I remember Mr.Pyle in many, many earlier shows as a bad guy in pictures with Wild Bill Elliott, Audie Murphy, Gene Autry TV series, as well as the Doris Day show and Dukes of Hazard. Sometimes he was so young in the early western I could hardly recognized him (as I watch old movies) on the Westerns Channels. To the best of my knowledge, this was his only absolute starring role in a film. Most of his parts were character actor parts, and he could do all of them very well, and could be just about anybody. Sometimes I felt I knew him.
