Series Info

Heartwarming saga of a frontier family's struggles and triumphs on a farm near Walnut Grove, Minn., in the 1870s. Based on the books of Laura Ingalls Wilder (whose character doubles as narrator), it was the signature achievement of star-executive producer Michael Landon. It relates the family's experiences dealing with natural disasters and health problems, notably the poignant story of Mary Ingalls' blindness. In its final season, it was titled `Little House: A New Beginning.'
