[A Row of Tigers is a] story written out of love for the open sheep country of Montana and with an understanding of individuals who do not adjust to the norm…. With its clear view of life in an area which young TV viewers will recognize as the Wild West, including Blackfeet Indians and a sheriff, the story says much about human values.
