Often narrated by Laura, the series follows her simple farm upbringing from her childhood until her adulthood with Almanzo Wilder with whom she starts a family of her own.

NBC intended to end the show after its fourth season, but the ratings stayed high enough to renew the show for a fifth season. It remained in the top thirty until it was finally cancelled in 1983.

This series offered a inspirational message, and sure an example of morality to children, and grown-ups alike like me, who maybe didn't have any other good influence in their life.

Still watching on streaming
