Drama series, starring Brenda Vaccaro as a school teacher who has left a dreary and predictable existence in the east to become the teacher for the frontier town of Independence, Colorado. "Sara" premiered on February 13, 1976. In this series, Brenda
Vaccaro starred as Sara Yarnell, a 19th-century frontier schoolteacher. "Sara," based on a novel by Marian Cockrell, concerns an Eastern teacher seeking new life in a frontier mining town. Contrary to everything the townspeople expect from their school marm, she wages a continual personal battle to maintain her own independence while struggling to build a school in a town where education is considered a frill. Ms. Vaccaro, an Emmy
Award-winning actress, is known to be a rather feisty nonconformist. This looked like a tailor-made role for her, and she just had the right mixture of sparkle and spunk to make it click.
