The Rifleman

Written by: Robert Pettit

As a man with a gun, he was among the best. He lived in North Fork out in the west. As a widower, he felt much anguish and pain. This extraordinary man was Lucas McCain. He and his son Mark lived alone on a ranch. On a tree of life, they were a strong branch. Town marshal Micah often called him for aid. Lucas stood strong, steady, and staid. No one included McCain among the meek. He stood as a hero on the television each week.
