Colonial's long running Western series opens with the three-part episode, "The Cattle on a Thousand Hills". In part 1, Britt, Dawes, Doc, Matt and Brad begin the cattle drive from Oklahoma to Clearmont, with the rustlers waiting for the right time to strike. In part 2, Cabot Warren, owner of the Ten Star Ranch, devises a plan to have the Creek Indians attack the cattle drive. In the concluding episode, the cattle drive must contend with the hands from the Ten Star Ranch, who are determined they will not reach Clearmont. In "Our Bugles Sang Truce", The Clearmont Bugle goes up for sale, Dawes and Erica each want to buy it. In the two-part episode "The Wild West Show", Britt meets William (Buffalo Bill) Cody, an old friend, who has just begun touring his Wild West Show. After Britt refuses Buffalo Bill's offer to join the show as a marksman, he discovers that a killer may be loose in the show, and signs onto the tour as a performer to track him down.

Powder River 7, Colonial Radio Theatre
If you haven't listened to these types of dramatizations, this is a great series to start with and the great news is that you can get all the other seasons as well! Excellent sound effects, interesting story lines and great actors. You really do get to listen and picture everything in your head. My only complaint is that I listen to them so quickly I'm always wanting the next one before it's ready for release!
POWDER RIVER STILL RIDES TALL IN THE SADDLE
The stories in this season are a lot of fun, especially when Britt goes undercover on the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show. They hearken back to the more gritty episodes of season two (The Cattle on a Thousand Hills) . A review I saw here said the stories are shorter which is not true. the episodes are the same length as the other seasons, although colonial is doing less episodes per season than the previous ones but the quality remains high.
