Posted at Bonanza Brand. There's an episode where Adam has to confront someone who looks just like him, but I got incensed because they would not let Pernell play his double. So I rewrote it, envisioning just that.
8 short Cartwright stories, starting with Adam's return from college, and following him through his development as eldest son to where he finally leaves the Ponderosa, for good. It includes stories I wrote completely at the Ponderosa Ranch, the first one I ever wrote, and one that I thought was a real episode I saw as a kid, only to find out I made it up as a kid. This is the newly edited 2020 edition.
