She appeared in thirteen episodes as Margaret Jones, or "Jonesy".
The stories have a limited educational value because each episode follows the basic facts of history.
The episodes focus on the capture of notorious bad men, such as John Wesley Hardin, Billy the Kid, Sam Bass, Clay Allison, Bill Doolin, the Dalton Brothers, the Younger Brothers, and Johnny Ringo, Doc Holliday, Tom Horn, Nate Champion, Cherokee Bill, Black Jack Ketchum, Black Bart, Augustine Chacon, Crazy Horse, Harry Tracy, the Wild Bunch of Wyoming, William Quantrill, Geronimo, Frank James, Billy the Kid, Henry Plummer, Belle Starr, and Cattle Kate Watson.
In 1955, Stories of the Century became the first western to win an Emmy Award in the category of "Western or Adventure Series".
The episodes are available on Youtube and Roku channels. The complete, remastered series is available on DVD.[/color]
