  • Trivia

    • There was not much to criticize about Caroline Ingalls' character--she was a wonderful wife, a patient and loving mother, and a caring person to most everyone--but in this pilot episode, it's clear that Caroline had some severe prejudices and made hasty judgments about certain people. She was obviously prejudice toward the Indians encountered in this episode, and despite Mr. Edwards' kindness and generosity to the family, it took her a long time to accept him because he was rough around the edges. This was a definite flaw in Caroline's character that was evident not only in this episode, but throughout the 10-year series.
