The Cartwright's thousand-square-mile Ponderosa Ranch is located near Virginia City, Nevada, site of the Comstock Silver Lode, during and after the Civil War. Each of the sons was born to a different wife of Ben's; none of the mothers is still alive. Adventures are typical western ones, with lots of personal relationships/problems thrown in as well

Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright: Whatever it was, I didn't do it.
Sheriff Roy Coffee: You sure do look guilty to me.
|Season 2 / Episode 15: - The Blood Line|
Ben Cartwright: [referring to Todd] You can't keep him behind bars. He's not a criminal! He's a 16-year-old kid!
Sheriff Roy Coffee: With a 16-year-old gun. Ben, do you realize if that kid was just a split second faster, you wouldn't be around anymore to watch either one of them grow any older?
Eric 'Hoss' Cartwright: He's right, Pa. A sidewinder is just as poisonous the day he's hatched as when he's full-grown.
Ben Cartwright: Well, we're not talking about sidewinders, we're talking about a boy. Besides, the fangs of this one have already been pulled.
Sheriff Roy Coffee: And I aim to see that he don't grow another set.
