The Waltons

Links and Other Info

I've sifted through several Internet sites claiming to be about The Waltons and have listed what I think are the best ones below.

Books

Goodnight, John-Boy 

(Earl Hamner & Ralph Giffin, 2002, paperback, 221 pages, $14.95)

To my knowledge (and surprise), I believe this is the only book ever written about the television series, The Waltons.  Authored by Walton's creator, Earl Hamner, the first 64 pages describe Earl Hamner's life, including his upbringing in Schuyler, the production of the film Spencer's Mountain, his career as a Los Angeles TV writer in the 1960s, the TV movie The Homecoming, and the series The Waltons.  The next 126 pages describe each of the 219 episodes of The Waltons and include occasional comments from the cast, directors, writers, and fans. The last 20 pages describe the Waltons Mountain Museum and lists resources and cast members.

 

It's a good book, but I wish Earl had spent more time describing his upbringing in Schuyler and his family, which interests me, and less time describing what actually happened in each episode.  I'd especially like to know how much truth there was behind each episode.  Also, there are a few typos.  Nevertheless, it's interesting and well-worth the price if you're a Waltons fan.
