    Summary

    After several wrong decisions in matters of apprenticeship, Caveo Chickens made another choice. The young man he selected might be an unconventional choice, but that was nothing the older Caretaker cared about any more. What he needed was a final successor, and he had found the right man for it.

    Adam Cartwright loved his family and his life on the Ponderosa, but his inner desire to see more of the world, and to do something different, if only for a while, tore him apart inwardly. When an old friend opened the doors to a whole new life for him, his excitement met reluctance, but he nonetheless accepted his incredible new task, not knowing what he would draw his family into.

    The young Caretaker Jules had a more problematic occupation than he would have ever expected. At first he thought he could deal with it alone, without bothering his elders, but then he drew his newest fellow and his father and brothers into what might or might not be a misery.

    A hundred years later, a girl who might or might not have been young, her companion, and her friend, a Caretaker of his day, decided to meet a dear friend, they had lost too soon.
