Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Bonanza inaugurated its tenth season on September 15, 1968, with the episode titled "Same Pines, Different Winds." Irene Tedrow is cast as tenacious widow Carrie Picket, who owns a parcel of land which she calls "her piney woods." Because her late husband never filed a legal claim for the property, Carrie is threatened with eviction by evil lumber tycoon Jason Milburn (Herb Voland). Joe Cartwright tries to come to Carrie's aid-only to be harshly rebuked by the old woman, who trusts absolutely no one. Also appearing are John Randolph as Doc and G. D. Spradlin as Jenk. "Same Pines, Different Winds" was written by Suzanna Clauser.
