Earl Henry Hamner Jr. was an American television writer and producer, best known for his work in the s and s as the creator of two long-running series, The Waltons and Falcon Crest. As a novelist, he is best known for Spencer's Mountain, which was inspired by his own childhood and formed the basis for both the film of the same name and the television series The Waltons, for which he provided voice Children: 2; Including Scott Hamner. "The Homecoming" is a heartwarming story about that Christmas Eve day on Spencer Mountain that welcomes us into their daily lives; the chores, the childhood rivalry, the festive preparations including a harrowing encounter with an aggressive buck who's determined but thankfully fails to attack Clay-boy while he's searching for that perfect /5(33).

  I have just bought the book Spencers Mountain and thought I'd contribute to this thread and bring it up to date. Earl Hamner called the story Spencer's Mountain because his paternal great-grandmother was named Susan Henry Spencer Hamner, so it was a family name. I have begun to read the book, only several pages into the first chapter, and I really have to admit that it has yet to 'grab' me.   The famous TV series "The Waltons" is based on "Spencer's Mountain." As a reader of fifty years, I highly recommend it. If you haven't read Richard Bradford's "Red Sky At Morning," that's another highly recommended coming-of-age novel (this one set in New Mexico in the s).Cited by: 1.

That book, "The Homecoming: A Novel About Spencer's Mountain," led to the movie by the same title that in turn spawned the nine-year TV series, "The Waltons." I don't know why this film was set in Wyoming instead of Virginia, but the expansive shots of the scenery could be one reason. Looking for books by Earl Hamner Jr.? See all books authored by Earl Hamner Jr., including Goodnight, John Boy: A Celebration of an American Family and the Values That Have Sustained Us Through Good Times and Bad, and The Homecoming, and more on
