  • The INgalls come to walnut grove to settle. They buy the farm from Mr. Hanson and Charles builds the little house. He makes a deal with the feed and seed owner to repair his roof and stack grain in swap for plow and seed. Trouble strikes

    The very first episode next to the pilot. Great introduction to all the regular townspeople and very heartwarming to boot. This is one of my favorite episodes of this series. It shows the trials and triumphs of a pioneer family and it shows the compassion neighbors have for neighbors. The acting is superb and it is a well written story that is both heartwarming and sad. It plays with the emotions and that is what Michael Landon was great at doing. He laughed when he laughed you cried when he cried. This series will continue to play in reruns for years to come. A Great family Tv program.
