Two episodes of the classic television western drama,following the trials and tribulations of the Cartwright family on their Ponderosa ranch during the 1860's.
The Last Trophy Lord Marion Dunsford (Edward Ashley) and his wife Lady Beatrice (Hazel Court) visit Ben (Lorne Greene) at the Ponderosa. Lady Beatrice takes an instant shine to Adam (Pernell Roberts), someone she considers more of a man than her husband.
Bitter Water Miner Lem Keith (Robert F. Simon) wants to buy land next to the Ponderosa, even though he knows the rightful owner won't sell. Causing a stir by infecting the Cartwrights' herd with ticks might help him achieve his aim.
