  • The price of wheat has fallen badly and Charles and others decide to go out seeking other work - with disasterous results.

    When Charles finds that the money he will receive for his current wheat crop will not feed himself and his family for the winter, he makes the tough decision to go out on the road seeking other work.

    Hauling explosive liquids is no picnic and there is a reason that it pays so well. Any bump in the road or an out of control horse could blow the entire load and the people with it sky high in a matter of seconds. But the pay is 100 dollars and that would certainly see the Ingalls family through the long, cold winter. But at what price?

    An edge-of-your-seat episode that has an appropriate amount of teary moments thrown in as well.
