Filmed on historic locations in Nevada, Wyoming, Texas, Arizona and CaliforniaFeat. exclusive acoustic performances from Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Pete Seeger, Glen Campbell and othersHosted by Dale Robertson, star of countless Western movies, and his sidekick Festus (aka Ken Curtis of 'Gunsmoke'' fame). The romance of the Old West and its music comes to life once again as Dale Robertson (with co-hosts Ken 'Festus' Curtis and Sioux Billy Irons) leads the way from the early days of cattle drives, cowboys, buffalo hunters and gunslingers to the glory days of the Goldrush and the railroad.

Filmed at iconic landmarks like Monument Valley, Utah, the Green River in Wyoming and the Nevada prairie, the series visits ghost towns, old railway depots and Indian reservations, takes us on a ride on an authentic Overland stagecoach and shows cowboys, gold diggers and hunters who faithfully recreate the legends of the West. Along the way there are fascinating encounters with a descendant of Indian chief Geronimo, a ballet dancer in a ghost town, and of course, Festus (Ken Curtis) telling one of his incredible tall tales.

With historic locations as the backdrop, the great songs of the West are performed exclusively for this program by Johnny Cash, Pete Seeger, Burl Ives, Willie Nelson, Glen Campbell, The Norman Luboff Choir, Rex Allen, Herb Jeffries, Eddie Dean, Charlie Red, Riders In The Sky, The Reinsmen,?and many more.
And while we are following the Oregon Trail near Chimney Rock in Nebraska, or watching thousands of buffalo roaming freely in Wyoming, we are also invited to a square dance - and Hunkpapa Sioux Billy Irons gives an exclusive recitation of 'The Lord's Prayer', overlooking the prairie from top of the mountains.
