Set in the Louisiana Territory around 1830, wealthy planter Jim Bowie encounters many famous people in New Orleans or the backwoods, relying for protection on the knife he supposedly invented after his regular one broke in a fight with a grizzly.
Season 1 Ep. 4: Deputy Sheriff
Jim volunteers to be a temporary deputy sheriff in order to guard a prisoner. However, he soon begins to suspect that the young man may not in fact be guilty of the crime he’s been charged with.
This series recounts the exploits of the legendary frontiersman, adventurer, plantation owner, and entrepreneur, Jim Bowie. It takes place primarily in the Louisiana Territory (recently purchased from the French) in the 1820′s and early 1830′s, before Bowie’s permanent move to Texas (then part of Mexico) and his untimely death at the Alamo in 1836. He encounters many historical figures of the era, such as Andrew Jackson, Jefferson Davis, John James Audubon, and Davy Crockett.
Produced by Louis Edelman, based on the novel “The Tempered Blade” by Monte Barrett. The rousing theme song was by Ken Darby and The King’s Men. As to the pronunciation of Bowie’s name, people pronounced it bow-ee in Louisiana, but boo-wee in Texas.
