Series Fun Facts
- David Von Ancken directed the first and last episode of the show.
- Goof (factual errors): The show has the Cherokee using stirrups. The plains Indians did not use stirrups. They were, therefore, limited to operating as light cavalry.
- SPOILER: The LDS Primary song, When I Am Baptized, sung in One Less Mule wasn't written until 1989.
