The Man Called Shenandoah TV show was a 30 minute western drama series on ABC about a man who was discovered nearly dead after being shot on a lonely prairie trail. Luckily some buffalo hunters found him and took him to the nearest town where a girl who worked in the saloon nursed him back to health. Unfortunately the man could not remember his name or anything else about his past. He decided to leave town on a quest to discover who he was but before he could leave he got into a gunfight with the single person who knew his identity and killed the man. And so his quest continued.

The man took on the name Shenandoah when it was suggested to him by a doctor who treated him during his recovery. The name means "land of silence", apparently referring to the fact that the man's past was not speaking to him.
For a relatively short run series, A Man Called Shenandoah managed to draw an outstanding number of popular guest stars! Among them were Claude Akins ("Movin' On"), Ed Asner ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show"), Bruce Dern ("Big Love"), George Kennedy ("The Blue Knight"), Martin Landau ("Mission Impossible"), Cloris Leachman ("Phyllis") and Warren Oates ("Stoney Burke").

A Man Called Shenandoah Theme Song Lyrics:
Title: "Oh Shenandoah"
Performed By: "Robert Horton"Oh Shenandoah
You're doomed to wander
On beyond this land so lonely
You're doomed to wander
So roam in search of home
Across this land so lonely
Been ridin' hard
The man I thought they would bury
