Storyline

When their grain doesn't sell for enough to see their families through the winter, Charles and Isaiah hire on with the railroad to haul a wagon-load of highly explosive nitroglycerin over a treacherous mountain road and, as their journey progresses, find themselves dealing with situations almost as volatile as the freight they so carefully carry.

money. that's what everyone needs right now.

Yes finally the first episode to future a person of color not counting the Indians.This is also the start of a lot of little house episodes that is going to tackle the touchy subject that is Racism. This episode just touches this subject by the one man don't want to work with the black man cause he's black The one white man doesn't want to drink from the same water canister then the black guy.(You now that kind of stuff)And I think it strikes hard in the end of the episode when the black guy couldn't ride inside the train but that he must go and ride outside.Luckely he had friends like Charles and Mr Edwards.They decided to go and sit with him outside(love that moment) And of course the most memorable line form this episode; White guy:"they kicked me out too,they discovered I'm Irish" laugh out loud funny.The wheat price fell through and they only get $7 instead of $47 as useal a busshel.So Charles must get a new job he and Mr edwards find something that pays $100 but its very dangerous. a good episode and totally worth the watch give it a go.

Now continue to episode 19
