If you're a Little House fan, you will like this.
17 July 2007 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

"The Young Pioneers" was based on a novel written by Rose Wilder Lane. Not many people realize Rose Wilder Lane is the daughter of Laura Ingalls Wilder who wrote the books which led to the TV show "Little House On The Prairie". In fact it was Rose who helped her mother polish the books so they could be published.

The movies are corny to be sure but they are the good kind of corn. I suspect the reason it didn't last one season is there was already this kind of show on TV (Little House) so the story was already being told and the era of the TV western was winding down.

Who knows? If the novel had been adapted for TV before the Little House stories, it might have worked.

If you can find the movies, I recommend them.
