The "Little House" Phenomenon Part Six A Lasting Legacy
Season six of Little House on the Prairie bids goodbye to Mary Ingalls (Melissa Sue Anderson) and her new husband, Adam Kendall (Linwood Boomer) -- at least on a regular weekly basis. With Mary and Adam having moved to the Dakotas, Laura Ingalls (Melissa Gilbert) is now the oldest daughter in her family, and she intends to prove her worth by following in Mary's footsteps as Walnut Grove's resident schoolteacher. She is also courted by a local farmer named Almanzo Wilder (Dean Butler), to whom she will become engaged. The principal characters must endure some heavy emotional baggage during the series' sixth season, when the town's schoolhouse burns down, killing Mary and Adam's baby as well as the wife of farmer Jonathan Garvey (Merlin Olsen). On a happier note, in the season's closing episode, "He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not," Laura and Almanzo have drawn up plans to marry and to teach in a new school in the town of Sleepy Eye; and Walnut Grove gossip Mrs. Oleson (Katherine MacGregor), having established her own business, hires a young man named Percival Dalton (Steve Tracy), who will ultimately wed her daughter, Nellie (Alison Arngrim).
My siblings and I were raised to read Laura Ingalls Wilders books and we watched these shows while they were first airing on television. Among all the things a niece could ask for in a Christmas wish Season 6 and seven of Little House were first on the list. I've bought previous ones from Best Buy and this ones for her but I know it will be good quality. Alwayd has been.
