Storyline

The Ingalls and the Edwards strike gold on their Dakota claim and, as the men work at extracting the ore, Caroline and Grace start a school for the miners' children with the help of the local minister, Reverend Phillips. But even as the families try to lead a normal life, greed, the bane of the gold rush, raises its ugly head. Caroline is alarmed when even Charles is unable to define how much gold is 'enough' and when Laura's discovery of an old miner's secret results in murder and betrayal the Walnut Grove residents begin to question their motives for staying any longer in this dangerous country.

Trivia

'Gold Country' originally aired as a two hour episode. In syndication it's split into two parts, and part 2 re-uses the opening theme from episode one, guest crediting actor Richard Bull as 'Town Folk' even though he isn't present. The credits for producers, writers and director is omitted after the opening theme, leaving them uncredited. See more »

Quotes

Caroline Ingalls: Charles, you're not going to work on the Lord's Day!
Charles Ingalls: The sooner we get rich, the sooner the Reverend will have the Lord's church. It's almost like doing the Lord's work, isn't it?

Good bye, Mr. Edwards!
9 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this conclusion to "Gold Country," we watch Charles really catch the fever. Even when a friend is murdered for his gold, Charles simply moves his family into town and continues on the hunt. Laura learns a very costly lesson about keeping her mouth shut when she reveals a secret that hurts a friend of hers.

Sometimes the lessons we learn are hard, but we usually remember them.

I'm a bit sad that this is the last episode with the Edwards family in it as they are. Soon, we'll see the Edwards again (next season, I believe), but never like they are here. Don't fear, though, because another great family moves into Walnut Grove and makes a bang of an appearance in the very next episode!
