Western stories and legends based, and filmed, in and around Death Valley, California. One of the longest-running Western series, originating on radio in the 1930s. The continuing sponsor was "20 Mule Team" Borax, a product formerly mined in Death Valley.
It is the 1870s in the Wyoming Territory. Slim Sherman and his fourteen-year-old brother Andy try to hang on to their ranch after their father was shot by a land grabber. They augment their slight cattle ranch income by serving as a stagecoach station near Laramie.Written by

This show was unique for its time, in that the two lead characters actually "worked" on the ranch. They chopped wood, cooked, washed dishes, washed clothes, fed chickens, repaired roofs, and did all the chores necessary to run a ranch. This aspect added an authenticity to the lead roles that you didn't see in other shows. See more »
I can remember quite clearly the opening of "Laramie" where the characters Slim and Jesse are seem galloping across the plains of Wyoming. Even all these years later the scene, backed by the inspiring music, makes me feel happy. Slim and Jesse operate a stagecoach depot on the route between Denver and Laramie. I did like the characters of Jonesy and Andy as well. Jonesy added some comic relief to the brutality of the old west. I think Slim and Jesse had perfect chemistry as partners. I did enjoy the episodes that featured them both rather than the ones where they rode alone as solos. I try to watch "Laramie" every day when I get home from work.
