I enjoyed the book very much and I go back to it again and again. It is very through and seems to be very accurate. The true personalities of the 4 great men are well presented and one almost feels when reading this book that they knew them personally. I am visiting the Ponderosa again this august and I thirst for more good books and videos of these great legends of tv and all our hearts.

As a lifelong, die-hard Bonanza fan (I was five years old when the show began and it was my parents' favorite show!) I was very excited to see that this book had been re-released after being out of print for so long. All my fellow Bonanza fan friends highly recommended the book to me, and I'm very pleased that I bought it, and very pleased to have it in my collection, but their raves about it led me to believe there was more information in the book than what actually appeared. In spite of that minor disappointment, I am thrilled with the format, the photos, and that I have in my hands the brief rundown of each show without searching through many webpages for the episode description. I wish though that the episode descriptions had been more in depth, and that the guest stars and their roles had been listed with each episode. Also the writers, directors, etc. So once again, I have to turn to the web to get the more complete information. Other than that, I do recommend the book to avid Bonanza fans. You won't regret the purchase.

Format: Paperback
BearManor Media presents "BONANZA: A VIEWER'S GUIDE TO THE TV LEGEND" (Paperback) - Written by David R. Greenland. Invision the Ponderosa as America's Camelot, the good king and his gallant knights supplanted in our democratic republic by the good father and his steady sons - thus "Bonanza" was born.

In the words of David Dortort (creator & producer of Bonanza) -- "An account of people seeking a new beginning, new land and homes, imbued with the hope for a better life for themselves and their families. This is a story of sinking one's roots in the new land, the plow that broke the plains and the tragic subjugation of the previous inhabitants, the Native Americans, because it was believed that they had to make way for the building of homes and farms, of schools and places of worship".

Very reasonable and a good value for the price --- For product description and editorial review check this out on the Amazon site above my review.

It was very informative and I loved learning how the actors were cast and what their backgrounds were how Dave Dortort came up with the idea and how the rumors about Adam was put to rest with regards to the so called feud with Michael Landon. I loved learning how well educated Dan Blocker was and why he hated war and How Michael Landon got his name and his background as well as Loren Greene. Overall it was a well written book.

This book should be read by all Bonanza fans. I was only 7 when this series came out and can't get enough of it. The book goes into great detail about the cast, for instance I didn't know Pernell Roberts wore a hairpiece. I thought he turned bald later in life. It also lists all the episodes for each season with a detailed description. I've read the Michael Landon books but they left out some character details covered in this book. Any Bonanza fan will love adding this to their collection.

I was not too sure when I ordered this book, but it is promoted by David
Dortort and he didn't disappoint. Great way to see if you want to watch a particular show and locations are noted in the back of the book with short descriptions of each episode. Fine details in the beginning of the book about the show, the directors and the actors. Well worth the cost which is negligible since the content is so precise. Greenland did a fine job.
