Earl Hamner once said, "There were eight of us. Tall, lean, fine-boned, red- headed youngsters growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia during the Depression. My father called us 'his thoroughbreds,' and put us on a pedestal. CBS called us 'The Waltons,' and put us on television." These stories and more in "EARL HAMNER STORYTELLER"
