A buckskin-clad mountain scout helps to move his parents, his brother and sister-in-law and their four children westward in 1860 ahead of the impending war in this sweeping drama based on the film “How the West Was Won.” James Arness returned to acting in this one after 20 years as Matt Dillon in “Gunsmoke,” and he later continued in the once-in-a-while series (1977-79), also called “How the West Was Won.”
