Compass Classroom is delighted to present The Six Shooter to enhance Dave Raymond’s American History curriculum or as a standalone resource for your homeschool.

James Stewart takes to the saddle as drifting cowboy Britt Ponset in forty, 30 minute-long western radio shows. Stewart’s performance as a folksy gentleman and—when needed—gunfighter are recognizable extensions of his Hollywood image.

Ponset finds himself in both dramatic and comedic situations across the series, evoking the best of classic westerns. Slow-talking Britt ambles into other people’s trouble and has to solve a slew of problems. He plays Hamlet with a traveling stage show, runs for mayor and sheriff at the same time, gets involved in a Western version of the Cinderella story, and even finds a heartbreakingly-doomed love. Each show introduces a character that your family will grow to love: The man in the saddle is angular and long-legged. His skin is sun-dyed brown. The gun in his holster is gray steel and rainbow mother-of-pearl, its handle unmarked. People call them both “the Six Shooter”.
