  • Trivia

    • The real Laura Ingalls' first teaching job was indeed so far away that she had to live away from home during the week, but her hostess was not a quirky, friendly old woman. Laura stayed with a family of three, and the wife strongly resented having to board the teacher. Laura felt unwanted, unsafe and unhappy there - her bright moments arrived only on the weekends, when Almanzo came to drive her home. (Of course, this school was in Dakota Territory, not in Minnesota.)
