Death on Sun Mountain

BonanzaSeason 1

Greedy opportunist Mark Burdette and his accomplice Early Thorne stir up trouble between the Paiute tribe and the citizens of Virginia City. Ben discovers Burdette and Thorne are selling antelope beef to the miners and finds the price too high. He offers the miners beef at a more reasonable price. Burdette and Thorne retaliate by framing the Paiute’s for attacks, by dressing as them and killing ranchers. Based on a factual accounting. Lorne Greene’s first voice-over narration, and no landing constructed yet for the Ponderosa stairway.
