      From the final season of Wagon Train came The Katy Piper Story, featuring Frances Reid. Reid is most famous for her decades on Days of Our Lives where she was the matriarch of the entire town. She’s a strong actress, and as Katy Piper, she’s very enticing and formidable.

      Katy is a doctor, which is pretty uncommon for the day. She’s also the


      surrogate mom to a fascinating group of children, including an adorable black girl, so Katy was very different for her time.

      The story, though, is more about Barnaby West, the teenager played by Michael Burns who has been on the show for a few years. This season, Barney finally gets his wish and wears a gun on his hip. That’s the impetus for this ...


      • story. He and Charlie are away from the wagon train waiting to meet with Katy who wants to join them for a while in the trek west. Seeing her, Barney realizes there’s a problem and, long story short, shoots and kills the young man who had been threatening Katy and the children. As it turns out, though, the man’s gun was fake.
        Barney’s guilt is huge.

        This is another somewhat surprising story for a western in that Barney has a physical reaction to what happened that is somewhat religious in nature. The rest of the story follows Barney and how he responds to it.

        For me, though, the best part of the story are the scenes with Reid and her children. Those are really good ones.
