The story of the dysfunctional and dirt-poor Walden family, headed by patriarch Ty Ty, who is firmly convinced that there is treasure buried on his land, treasure that dates back to the glory days of the clan.  He is determined to find it, and drives his family to dig up the entire property in a frenzied effort to find it – but the acre dedicated to God must not be touched!  Made into a film with Robert Ryan and Tina Louise, well away from her ditzy Gilligan’s Island role.
