Epilogue – based on the teleplay “Rimrock” by Rod Peterson and story by John C. Champion


JESS HARPER: (Voice Over)(Riding his horse on the trail back to the Sherman ranch) I sure hope things are goin’ to be better now for Holly and the rest of the folks in Rimrock. Maybe it will. I know it’s gonna to be a while before I forget all the trouble I found there. Day like this though, when a man’s riding easy ‘n feeling the sun on his face. Na, it’s hard to think about much else else except how good it is to be getting home.
