Laura Ingalls Wilder (Episode 1)


Episode Info

The first episode of Little House on the Prairie's two-part season-seven opener takes place some six months after the end of season six. Although Nellie Oleson (Alison Arngrim) has wed Percival Dalton (Steve Tracy), her childhood rival, Laura Ingalls (Melissa Gilbert), must still wait until she is 17 before she can marry Almanzo Wilder (Dean Butler). Alas, Almanzo has been tricked into squandering all his money on a crooked land deal and must postpone the wedding even further -- and when Laura offers to help him out financially by taking a teaching job, he won't hear of it. Meanwhile, romance comes into the life of Almanzo's schoolmarm sister, Eliza Jane (Lucy Lee Flippin), in the form of hired hand Harv Miller (James Cromwell).
