Overview

Travel back to the prairie and follow one family on as they strive to start life anew in Kansas in this television classic based on the writings of Laura Ingalls Wilder. As the Ingalls leave the familiar woods of Wisconsin to make way for the wide-open plains of Kansas, they must maintain their courage and resilience to overcome adversity and make their dream of a new life come true. This is the story that started it all, and once you join the Ingalls on their long and arduous journey you'll never be the same.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
The Ingalls family ventures west in this 1974 made-for-TV movie that launched one of television's most beloved series. Sanitized to be sure, but less saccharine than the eventual series, this adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder's book follows incongruously blow-dried Charles (Michael Landon, who also directed), his hearty wife Caroline (Karen Grassle), and their daughters Laura (Melissa Gilbert), Mary (Melissa Sue Anderson), and Carrie (Lindsay and Sidney Greenbush) as they leave their home in the "Big Woods" for a place where land is more bountiful. There are rivers to cross and hills to climb, not to mention harsh weather, scarce food, and predatory dangers as the close-knit family builds their first little house on the Kansas prairie before those "blasted politicians" force them to move. Victor French is welcome company as uncouth frontiersman Isaiah Edwards, who helps the Ingallses. Onward to Walnut Grove, and Season 1, which is available in a DVD box set.
