Buckskin Tidbits

Ten year old Jody lived in his mother’s boardinghouse in Buckskin, Montana in 1880. Because this was a social center for the whole town, young Jody got to interact with both the townspeople and with all the guests passing thru the frontier town.

One of this show’s problems was that it got moved around on the schedule four times. It was rerun in the summer of 1965.TV Western - Buckskin
