Dust jacket notes: "For the last twenty-eight years, Michael Landon has held one of TV's most enviable records. As series go, he's batting a perfect 1,000, with three successive hits and no misses. Fans have fondly watched him grow up as teen idol 'Little Joe Cartwright' through fourteen 'Bonanza' seasons, mature into a strong father for nine years on 'Little House on the Prairie,' and move up to sainthood as angel Jonathan Smith on 'Highway to Heaven' since 1984. With each new series he has managed to hold on to his old fans and captivate millions of new, younger one. Along the way he has carefully crafted his public image as a caring, tender, home-loving guy, not much different from the characters he plays on the small screen. For the first time, this insightful biography fits together all the pieces of Landon's jigsaw-puzzle life, exposing the private man behind the image. It is an in-depth profile of his tumultuous childhood, his early successes and failures, and how his career grew to encompass writing, producing and directing. There are also glimpses into his no-so-perfect family life. Marsha Daly, writing with style and precision, reveals the real man, who has both assets and faults, behind the larger-than-life image that Michael Landon has created for himself."
